"Bridget" was the Irish immigrant service girl who worked in American homes from the second half of the nineteenth century into the early years of the twentieth. Many of these socially-marginalized Irish immigrant women made their living in domestic service. In contrast to immigrant men, who might have lived in a community with their fellow Irish, these women lived and worked in close contact with American families. Margaret Lynch-Brennan reveals the essential role this unique relationship played in shaping the place of the Irish in America today.

“Successful science writing tells a complete story of the ‘how’—the methodical marvel building up to the ‘why’—and Randall does just that.”—New York Times Book Review

Join us  for a workshop with Linda Richmond to create a one act improvisational play.  Described as “fantastic fun,” entertaining  and challenging,” and a “brilliant  day,” the workshop leads participants through developing characters and scenarios from their imaginations and experiences to improvising  a play around a common theme.  NO PRIOR ACTING EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY AND THERE IS NO SCRIPT, SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO LEARN LINES.                

The actors will perform the play at 3:00pm in the Community Room.
