Michael Bath, Carter Bratton and Kevin Crowley in The Irish Curse

The Clifton Players are bringing back the wildly popular The Irish Curse, May 9 through May 17. Only six performances!

“This is as good an ensemble as any local stage has assembled all season.” – David Lyman, The Cincinnati Enquirer

“4.5/5 stars” – League of Cincinnati Theatres

What “The Irish Curse” is – and how it manifests itself – is the raw centerpiece of this rollicking play. From its blistering language to its brutally honest look at sex and body image, The Irish Curse is a revealing portrait of how men, and society, define masculinity. Size matters to this small group of Irish-American men who meet every Wednesday night, in a Catholic church basement, at a self-help group for men with small penises. This allegedly Irish trait is the focus of their weekly whining as they feel this “shortcoming” has ruined their lives. When a 20-something blue-collar guy joins the group, he challenges everything these men thought about “the Irish curse,” tackling their obsession with body image and unmasking the comical and truthful questions of identity, masculinity, sex, relationships, and social status that define their lives.Starring Michael Bath, Carter Bratton, Kevin Crowley, Buz Davis and Pete Wood. Directed by Cathy Springfield.
Tickets available soon.The third show for this season The Riverside will be staged at a later date.
