A New Comedy about Guys with One Tiny Problem
by Martin Casella

February 10 - March 6, 2011 (SOUTHEAST US PREMIERE)

"Casella is at his best when he's going for laughs. He gets a lot of them." - NY Times

"A funny and charming play. The Vagina Monologues for guys!" - NY Post

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.

by Stephen Belber

March 31 - April 24, 2011 (SOUTHEAST US PREMIERE)

"It's a piercing, compassionate portrait of two damaged people briefly reaching out to each other." - Backstage

"Compelling... a sublime, beautifully acted drama." - NY Times

Molly and Ray unexpectedly meet 25 years after a one-afternoon adolescent fling. She has a successful media career; he owns a small landscaping business. Both begin to romanticize their chance reunion, but a renewed connection is disrupted when Ray reveals the sordid details of a crime that left him incarcerated for ten years. Their encounter reveals two vastly different paths taken and two lonely souls attempting to reclaim a moment of possibility, when they were young and perhaps at their very best.

by Sam Shepard

June 2 - June 26, 2011 (SOUTHEAST US PREMIERE)

"A poignant and honest continuation of themes that have always been present in the work of one of this country's most important dramatists, here reconsidered in the light and shadow of time passed." - NY Times

"Finely wrought... as enjoyable and enlightening as a night spent stargazing." - Talkin' Broadway

A gruffly poignant and darkly funny play. Byron and Ames are old friends, re-united by mutual desperation. Over bourbon on ice, they sit, reflect and bicker until fifty years of love, friendship and rivalry are put to the test at the barrel of a gun.
