The Castle
Rob Sitch's comic treasure embraces its characters in the full bloom of glorious eccentricity.

The endearing Michael Caton stars as Daryl Kerrigan, a family man who is determined to withstand developers who have 'compulsorily acquired' his weatherboard house to make way for an extension of the adjacent airport.

With a flavour strongly reminiscent of old Ealing comedies, the little man takes on big business interests. in this case with the aid of deeply incompetent lawyer Dennis Denuto (Tiriel Mora).
