About this show

What The Irish Curse is - and how it manifests itself - is the raw centerpiece of this wicked, rollicking and very funny new 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, daring to pose the fundamental question that has been on the minds of men since the beginning of time: "Do I measure up to the next guy?" A small group of Irish-American men (all professionally successful New Yorkers) meets every Wednesday night, at a men's self-help group. One evening, when a twenty-something blue-collar guy joins the group, he challenges everything the other men thought about the Irish curse, tackling their obsession with body image and unmasking the comical/truthful questions of identity, masculinity, sex, relationships, and social status that define their lives.
