In advance of their national tour of a new show entitled, Maloney’s Dream, opening at the Town Hall Theatre, Galway on 7th April 2016, Branar will launch a brand spanking new website for the show – This is a unique initiative and resource for young audiences, teachers and schools.


Branar have developed an interactive website as a resource to provide young audiences with a context for our show Maloney’s Dream.


Maloney’s Dream is a theatre show which is set against the background of Easter week 1916. Thaddeus Maloney has a dream to open a new hotel on Sackville St (now O’Connell Street) on Easter Monday 1916. This is the story of how one man’s dream collided with the birth of a nation. It’s a bilingual show that is jam packed with live music and brimming with historical references.


The website also aims to help schools to negotiate the vast amount of information that is available about 1916. Branar will launch the site on the 28th of September 2015 and will update the information on a monthly basis until the show opens in April. The website address is 


The resources on the site look at the life of the child in 1915/16, the events that happen as they happened month on month in the 6 months prior to the rising. There are links to videos and images of the time. There is also a section about the creation of the show. There are letters written at the time, downloadable activities and lesson plans and quirky bit of information that bring the period to life for the children.
