What 'The Irish Curse' is - and how it manifests itself - is the raw centerpiece of this wicked, rollicking, and very funny new play. Size matters to a small group of Irish-American men who meet weekly in a Catholic church basement in New York City as part of a self-help group for guys who possess a certain anatomical 'shortcoming.' This alleged Irish trait is the focus of their weekly sessions as they all feel this 'curse' has ruined their lives. THE IRISH CURSE is a revealing portrait of how men, and society, define masculinity, male identity, and the relationships men must face each and every day of their lives.

Adult Language - For Mature Audiences


"For women, the play provides insight into the mysterious workings of the male psyche, for men, safety in numbers, and for everyone a warm, and satisfying comedy."
- The Irish Examiner

"Casella is at his best when he's going for laughs. He gets a lot of them."
- New York Times

" * * * * Critics' Pick! Colorful character-driven comedy!"
- Time Out New York

"Really good theater...'Irish Curse' is a blessing."
- The Miami Herald

"Funny, touching and really rather brave. You could really begin to believe that size doesn't matter."
- "The Scotsman" (Edinburgh)

"A slice of 21st century masculinity...hilarious... wonderfully innovative."
- Notes from the Underground (London)
