By Ruth Park
An adaptation for the stage by Kate Mulvany
16 AUG — 6 OCT 2018 | ROSLYN PACKER THEATRE
A great Australian novel. A landmark theatre event. A portrait of Sydney as it once was.
The world premieres of The Harp in the South: Part One and The Harp in the South: Part Two are designed to be enjoyed as one unforgettable, epic theatrical experience.
This major new work is one of the most ambitious productions STC has ever created. Celebrated playwright Kate Mulvany has adapted novelist Ruth Park’s revered Australian trilogy – Missus, The Harp in the South and Poor Man’s Orange – and spread these beloved stories across two equally ambitious plays.
The two parts stand alone. It’s a moving family saga and a celebration of Sydney in all its funny, gritty glory.
