Castle Gillian

Based on the novel ‘Castle Gillian’ by Maurice Walsh (author of ‘The Quiet Man’)

Castle Gillian is being developed with the permission of the Estate of Maurice Walsh.  With an underlying right granted for the first time since the 1960s for a musical stage adaptation of a story by the famed Irish author, Kevin Purcell (music) and Victor Kazan (lyrics) have teamed up with one of Australia’s most successful and inspiring authors, Kate Forsyth (book & lyrics) to adapt this wholly remarkable and heart-warming love story.

Set in post-war 1940s Ireland, tells the story of a young man broken by the war and his family’s struggle to keep the ancestral home, Castle Gillian; a once-famous horse-racing stable, from being acquired by a ruthless local land owner – and would-be-suitor to the family’s daughter.
