The Irish Curse Gala Weekend
UPDATED: Date TBA
This audience and critic favorite returns for one weekend! The Irish Curse chronicles five Irish-American men who meet in a Catholic Church basement at a self-help group for men with small penises, i.e, “The Irish Curse.”
The Players and Untethered complete almost all of the pre-production and production work in-house, keeping with the mission of high quality/low cost productions. Our sets and costumes are often built out of reclaimed materials, and we partner with the other businesses in our district to promote the health and viability of the Clifton community. The space transforms with each production, drawing you into the setting of the current show, while still remaining a studio for learning available to all those wishing to continue or begin their craft. When you see a show at the Clifton Performance Theatre, you get a true storefront experience – an intimate, highly-charged, actor-driven theatrical production.
We greatly need and appreciate all those who have in the past or continue to financially support this space.
Every ticket sale, every donation, every class purchase, is a tool for keeping this unique theater available in Cincinnati. Thank you!
