Harp in the South, The - DVDs
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.
A story that centres on the bittersweet first and last loves of Roie, who becomes a woman too quickly living among the tenement houses, razor gangs, brothels and sly-grog shops of inner city Surry Hills.
The Darcy family's story is continued on in 'Poor Man's Orange'.
