‘The Irish Curse,’ March 2-24 At TheatreWorks

NEW MILFORD — TheatreWorks New Milford will 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 day of their lives.

The Irish Curse is under the direction of Robin Frome of New Milford. It features some of the region’s finest actors including Michael Wright of Newtown, Jonathan Ross of Thomaston, Glenn R. Couture of Ansonia, James Hipp of New Milford, and Charles Roth of New Fairfield.

Performances will run March 2-24. Curtain time is 8 pm Fridays and Saturdays, with a 2 o’clock Sunday matinee on March 18. Tickets for all shows are $20, for reserved seating.

Thursday, March 8, also at 8 pm, will be this production’s Pay-What-You-Want night. At this performance, you name the price for your ticket.

The Irish Curse is recommended for mature audiences only.

Reservations can be made online at www.TheatreWorks.us or by calling the box office at 860-350-6863.
