Odyssey Theatre Ensemble will present the California premiere of Martin Casella's The Irish Curse, July 7-August 26. Andrew Barnicle will direct.

In The Irish Curse, a group of Irish-American men meet weekly in the basement of a Catholic church. The focus of their self-help group is a certain anatomical shortcoming - an alleged Irish trait they all feel has ruined their lives.

The cast will feature Scott Conte, Austin Hébert, Shaun O'Hagan, Joe Pacheco, and Patrick Quinlan.

the design team will include Thomas A. Walsh (set design), Merrily Murray-Walsh (costume design), and Michael Gend (lighting design).
