The Robert H. Jackson Center is pleased to welcome the remarkable talent of Living Voices (part of TheatreWorks USA) on Wednesday and Thursday, June 15&16, 2022  to perform “The New American” in our Cappa Theatre. This live, interactive performance will ask the audience to question what it means to start a new life in a new country?

Discover the journey from steerage to Ellis Island to the sweatshops of New York City, through the experiences of one young Irish immigrant forced to seek a new American life on her own.

In the early 1900s, Bridget leaves the turmoil and poverty of Ireland for the promise of work and better opportunity in the United States, where she faces the challenges and discrimination of immigrant life on the road to citizenship.

This program is typically offered as part of our education series for K-12student.

Registration is required to attend this program. Register by calling 716-483-6646.

This event was made possible, in part, through the generosity of our donors and Whirley Industries, Inc.
