The Onion Game

Irish Classical Theatre Company presents, The Onion Game, opening Friday, June 3rd at 7:30pm through June 26th. Onion and Pearl are miserably married. Their children, Ogie and Millie, are displaying increasingly strange behavior. As Onion writes the Great Irish Novel and Pearl covers the house in beads, they secretly plot each other’s ruin. The Onion Game, by ICTC’s Playwright-in-Residence Bryan Delaney, author of The Cobbler and The Seedbed, launches a hilarious assault on the hollow aspirations of modern life. This is a grotesque dark comedy of treachery, revenge, literature… and onions.

Curtain times are 7:30pm Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, 3pm Saturdays, and 2pm Sundays. Tickets are $49 and can be purchased online at, by phone at (716) 853-4282 or in person at the ICTC Box Office from 10am – 5pm Monday-Thursday, 12pm – 8pm Friday. Student/Senior/Veteran/Industry discounts are also available.
