The Irish Curse Returns May 9th!
This wildly popular show is back for two weeks only! You still have a chance to see this wondeful show! The League of Cincinnati Theatres gave the production 4.5 out of 5 stars and David Lyman of the Cincinnati Enquirer adds, “This is as good an ensemble as any local stage has assembled all season. There is an enviable intimacy among them. Some of it is the familiarity built in to Casella’s script. But most of it stems from the remarkable interaction of these veteran actors.” Visit the Clifton Players blog for more. Tickets available soon.

NEXT UP FOR ADULTS
THE PLAYERS AND UNTEATHERED THEATER 2013/2014 SEASON
A wickedly delightful and heart-wrenching play, The Irish Curse, will be presented by The Clifton Players February 28. What “The Irish Curse” is – and how it manifests itself – is the raw centerpiece of this rollicking 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. Size matters to this small group of Irish-American men who meet every Wednesday night, in a Catholic church basement, at a self-help group for men with small penises. This allegedly Irish trait is the focus of their weekly whining as they feel this “shortcoming” has ruined their lives. When a 20-something blue-collar guy joins the group, he challenges everything these men thought about “the Irish curse,” tackling their obsession with body image and unmasking the comical and truthful questions of identity, masculinity, sex, relationships, and social status that define their lives. BUY TICKETS FOR 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!
