The sweep of the Irish experience from County Cork to New York City is on display in "Echoes of Ireland," a drama about family ties, the immigrant life and the Irish-American experience.

The play is being presented by Cornerstone Theatre Arts, through an agreement with Eldridge Plays and Musicals.

"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 United 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.

Written and directed by Brian C. Petti, "Echoes" will hold performances on Saturday, June 21, and Sunday, June 22 at 2 p.m. at The Goshen Music Hall, 223 Main St., Goshen (second floor walkup).

Echoes of Ireland was recently produced in County Cork by the Skibbereen Theatre Society where it garnered rave reviews. The show features notable local actors Ron Morehead, Cat Barney and Mary Ellen Nelligar.

Tickets are $10 and may be reserved by calling 845-294-4188. Seating is limited; reservations are strongly suggested.
