Echoes Of Ireland 

Written and Directed by Brian C. Petti SYNOPSIS:  Echoes of Ireland is a series of inter-related monologues that follows the saga of a single Irish family from County Cork in 1860 to 2001 New York City. Beginning five years after the end of the potato famine in Ireland, Echoes follows the Cunyngham clan through their journey across the ocean to the ports of Manhattan, through the lowly existence of immigrant life in the States, to the assimilation and rebirth of their family as American citizens who never forget from whence they came. The journey is part tragedy, part comedy, part history lesson and all undeniably human.  Echoes has been performed throughout the Hudson Valley area, and was also produced in County Cork by the Skibbereen Theatre Society.   "It is a bit of a shock to experience Petti's verbal chiaroscuro pulsing with imagination and unselfconscious poetry, tied to real emotion and stunning character." John Paul Keeler, Catskill Hudson Newspapers     Fri. May 31, 2019 (8pm) and Sat. June 1, 2019 (8pm) The Greek Cultural Center 2680 30th St B2, Astoria, NY 11102 Main entrance:  Down the steps on the right.
