Maloney’s Dream - a story of the 1916 Rising accessible for children

New show to get its world premiere in Galway

SET DURING Easter Week 1916, Maloney’s Dream, the exciting new show for children from Galway-based theatre company Branar Téatar Do Pháistí, receives its world premiere at the Town Hall Theatre, with performances from Wednesday April 6 to Saturday 9.

Maloney’s Dream/Brionglóid Maloney is an action-packed, bi-lingual show full of live music, physical theatre, and puppetry. Created specifically for young audiences aged 8+, this is a captivating story of how one man’s dream collided with the birth of a nation. Thaddeus Maloney returns home to Ireland to realise his dream of opening a new hotel on Sackville Street (now O’Connell Street ). However, the events of that week impact his plans.

Using diary entries and recorded personal accounts, Maloney’s Dream explores the impact the 1916 Rising had on the lives of ordinary people and aims to bring their truly human stories to the foreground.
