Synopsis: Worlds collide when the proprietors of a stately English home generously invite two wounded soldiers to recuperate within their walls. But these aren’t just any soldiers — these are ANZACs. Echoes of their bravery on the beaches of Turkey have traveled throughout Europe and have lead Bill Gash and Jim Blake right into the heart of the British upper-class, and while they may not be prepared for the Lords, Ladies, titles & servants — the English aristocracy are certainly not prepared for two blokes from the Merrawinia Cattle Station. 

Gallipoli Bill is the last professionally-performed stage play by Arthur Adams (1872 - 1936) and "deserves to be remembered not just as a historical curiosity but because of its conscious attempt to record some of the attitudes and slang of the Australian soldiers during the Great War of 1914 - 1919." - Richard Fotheringham. 

Production History: Little is known about productions of Gallipoli Bill apart from a short perfessional production in 1926.
