Calendar Notice for "The Irish Curse" March 2 to March 24, 2012
NEW MILFORD, CONN. (January 19, 2012) – TheatreWorks New Milford is proud to open its 2012 season with the scathing modern comedy THE IRISH CURSE by Martin Casella.
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.
THE IRISH CURSE is under the direction of Robin Frome of New Milford.
The production features some of the region's finest actors: Michael Wright (Newtown), Jonathan Ross (Thomaston), Glenn R. Couture (Ansonia), James Hipp (New Milford) and Charles Roth (New Fairfield).
THE IRISH CURSE runs March 2,3 9,10 16,17,18 23,24. Curtain time is 8:00 p.m. Fridays & Saturdays, with a 2:00 p.m. Sunday matinees on March 18. Tickets for all shows are $20 for reserved seating.
