Written by Martin Casella — whom you may or may not know as the playwright of such theatrical gems as Paydirt, The Big Enchilada, and George Bush Goes to Hell — The Irish Curse deals with the stereotype that many an Irishman is cursed with a small penis (often accompanied by large testicles — “all potatoes, no meat” — and a boozy red schnoz — “red nose, short hose”). Set in New York in the basement of a Catholic church, Casella’s thought-provoking, character-driven comedy focuses on a support group for the poorly endowed, where measuring up is no small issue. Directed by Roberto Prestigiacomo, AtticRep’s production of The Irish Curse stars Rusty Thurman, Lawrence Coop, Tyler Keyes, Rick Frederick, and Rodman Bolek. Shown here, a cloverleaf graphic designed by the late, great artist “Tia” Chuck Ramirez. $10-$20 at brownpapertickets.com or at the door; 8pm Thu, May 12; 8pm Fri, May 13; 8pm Sat, May 14; 2:30pm Sun, May 15; AtticRep Theatre, Trinity University, One Trinity Place, (210) 999-8524, atticrep.org.
