Force Ten Gayle is a new musical with book, music and lyrics by Neil Bastian.

Singer Gayle Bailey is a 60s superstar who gave away her son for adoption at the start of her career.

Twenty-five years later, she discovers he’s a struggling songwriter, Jason Gates.

She hires him on the pretext of writing her next album so that she can be with him without him knowing their real relationship.

But one drunken night, Gayle blurts out the truth.

Should Jason tell his beloved adopted mother, a terminally ill supermarket checkout girl from Grand Island, Nebraska – who’s also the world’s greatest Gayle Bailey fan?

With storming ballads, family turmoil and a whirlwind of emotions, get ready to be blasted by FORCE TEN GAYLE.
