Dublin, April, 1916. Revolutionary; James Connolly; looks to Dublin printers, Molloy, O'Brien and Brady to turn out 2000 copies of an Irish Proclamation- in one night and in secret- to be read by Padraig Pearse at the GPO Easter Monday 24th April 1916. They don't have enough type. They don't have enough wax. They don't have enough paper. Can they do it?
