Annie Moore – First Immigrant, a musical and historical account of the first immigrant through Ellis Island, comes to The Everyman.

Annie Moore – First Immigrant is a musical and historical account of the first immigrant through Ellis Island in 1892. New and original songs, coupled with well-crafted narration and a dramatised ‘American Wake’, illustrate a life of hardship and struggle in a bid to triumph over adversity, as experienced by this young Cork girl. The evocative lyrics of the songs, in a variety of styles, enlighten and challenge the participants as they express different characters’ views on the immigrants arriving to America. This musical exploration of the plight of women at the turn of the 20th Century, infant mortality, prejudice, alcohol and sobriety and historical culinary, all help to create a factual account of life in America for an Irish immigrant. The story provides an insight into the political and societal norms of the period, while holding a mirror to more recent events worldwide and gently encouraging us to reflect. It explores the theme of immigration through the lens of Annie’s experiences and the different phases of her life, the characters she met on her journey, her success and losses and ultimately her family’s integration into the US.

Featuring a live band and a multi-media experience to recreate the sights and sounds of the time, this production promises to create a magical time-travelling evening of entertainment, with heart-warming new music and lyrics in the company of our heroine Annie!
