    In THE IRISH CURSE size matters to a small group of Irish-American men who meet every Wednesday night, in a meeting hall of a Catholic church, at a self-help group for men with small penises (it is allegedly an Irish trait to be under-endowed). 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 and truthful questions of identity, masculinity, relationships, social status, sex and the ever important “do I measure up to the next guy?” The New York Times writes: “Casella is at his best when he’s going for laughs. He gets a lot of them.” According David Rosember of Back Stage, The Irish Curse is “FUNNY, POIGNANT AND INSIGHTFUL. Their obsessions are amusing, their hurts are real, and the play is penetrating. Casella delineates sharply drawn characters, and The Irish Curse paints a picture that is at once expansive and liberating.”
