CURRENTLY IN DEVELOPMENT
based on the nove, ‘Castle Gillian’ by Maurice Walsh
Executive Producers: Perry Street Theatricals, New York, NY.
Castle Gillian, is adapted from the novel of the same name by famed Irish novelist, Maurice Walsh (1879 – 1964). Walsh is probably best known for his quintessential romantic Irish story The Quiet Man, made famous by the iconic 1952 John Ford film starring Maureen O’Hara and John Wayne.
Set in Ireland in 1948, Castle Gillian tells the story of Gill Morris, a young Irishman profoundly damaged by his experiences in the WWII who regains his faith in love and the world as he fights to save his ancestral home – and once-famous racing stable – Castle Gillian. This is a story of how love, hope and courage can heal the wounds of the past and make miracles happen.
A concept album of the songs from the show will commence recording in November 2020 with the Australian Discovery Orchestra.
