Maloney’s Dream
Pavilion Theatre - Maloney’s Dream
When one man's dream of a new beginning collided with the birth of a nation... With a fantastically talented ensemble cast, set design by Maeve Clancy, original score by Michael Chang and puppets by Suse Reibeisch this will be a treat of a show for all ages. It’s a bilingual show that is jam packed with live music, physical theatre and puppetry. A special educational website has been developed which aims to help schools to negotiate the vast amount of information available about 1916. The resources on the website look at the life of a child in 1915/16, the events that happen as they happened month on month in the 6 months prior to the rising. There are useful links to images and videos of the time:
