PUBLISHED: 6th March 2019
ANNOTATION:
Welcome to 12 1/2 Plymouth Street, in Sydney's Surry Hills. This is the home of the Aussie Irish Catholic family, The Darcys as lovingly told by Award-winning author Ruth Park. In The harp In The South and Poor Man's Orange, Park tells of the trials and tribulations of growing up in a Sydney slum in the years immediately following the Second World war. In The Harp in the South we first meet The Darcys a poor, working class family of tough Irish stock - Mumma (Anne Phelan), dad Hughie (Martyn Sanderson), Roie (Anna Hruby), Grandma Kilker (Gwen Plumb) and the younger daughter Dolour (Kaarin Fairfax), through whose eyes we hear their story. A story that centres on the bittersweet first and last loves of Roie, who becomes a woman too quickly living among the tenement houses, rzor gangs, brothels and sly-grog shops of inner city Surry Hills. The Darcy family's story is continued on the companion DVD 'Poor Man's Orange'.
