Ate after the show at one of the many Japanese restaurants on Sawtelle, just across the 405 freeway.

An engaging play about how men bond with each other. Terrific performances and dead-on production values. Very sexually explicit, though ultimately that's not the point of the play. Honesty and caring are.

Quotes & Highlights

“For women, the play provides insight into the mysterious workings of the male psyche; for men, safety in numbers; and for everyone, a warm and satisfying comedy.” — The Irish Examiner
“Five exceptionally likeable characters who are a pleasure to spend 90 minutes with; raunchy, hilarious, and very frank.” — Martin Denton, nytheatre.com
At its world premiere at New York’s International Fringe Festival in 2005, The Irish Curse won the Overall Excellence Award for Outstanding Playwriting

Description

Please note: This show contains adult language and is intended for mature audiences.

The Odyssey Theatre Ensemble’s mission remains firm: the creation of new work, the revitalization and re-exploration of classical material, consistent experimentation with the most current developments at the forefront of the “state of the art” in the international theatre world, ongoing investigation of the “process” of creating theatre, and continuing development of new acting, directing, and writing talent via the Actor’s Laboratory, Play Development Program, and Emerging Directors Plan. Ultimately, the institution moves toward the creation of a larger International Experimental Theatre Center, facilitating the crosspollination of artists from different countries, cultures and disciplines, and the exposure of this collaborative work to the Southern California audience.
