by Michael Rabice - Jun 16, 2022

Another wholly dysfunctional family has entered the literary realm in a new play by Bryan Delaney and Buffalo's Irish Classical Theatre gets to show them off in all of their wretchedness. Dublin-born playwright Delaney has been named ICTC's Playwright in Residence and is best known to Buffalo audiences for his plays the The COBBLER and THE SEEDBED. His newest play, THE ONION GAME,  is a wicked black comedy set in rural North County Dublin and the results are mostly satisfying for it's revelatory nature and unexpected twists.

by Michael Rabice - Mar 15, 2019

Playwright Tony Kushner's magnum opus may very well be what he subtitled 'A Gay Fantasia on National Themes.' Better known as ANGELS IN AMERICA, PART ONE: MILLENNIUM APPROACHES, this pivotal piece of theatre was written during the height of the AIDS crisis in America when maudlin stories of dying young men were plastered everywhere. But why refer to this piece as a 'fantasia' and what did it really mean. In lesser hands, the fantasia connotations could lead to ideas of raunchy drag show , but Kushner has fashioned a gripping account of one man's gut wrenching struggles with AIDS and how those around him cope with the illness. While sometimes blurring the borders of reality and fantasy, Kushner's fascinating play is underscored by the politics of the Reagan era mixed with religious ideologies.

BWW Review: THE SEEDBED at IRISH CLASSICAL THEATRE
by Michael Rabice - Mar 24, 2017

A series of purported subtle exchanges and misinterpreted actions of a small Irish family form the framework for Bryan Delaney's THE SEEDBED, now on stage at Buffalo's Irish Classical Theatre. Reminiscent of the darkness found is so much of Edward Albee's family dramas, playwright Delaney creates a brooding home that on the surface seems superficially concerned about how everyone is feeling and doing, when in actuality mother, father and daughter all are acting as victims to an unspeakable incident.
