The Harp in the South

Kate Mulvany reading from Ruth Park’s The Harp in the South

A classic Australian novel read by one of its most loving admirers. For the second instalment of STC Virtual, beloved actor, screenwriter, and playwright Kate Mulvany reads the opening passage from this iconic story of old Sydney: The Harp in the South by Ruth Park. Kate adapted the book – a beautifully drawn tale of community, family and class struggle set in Surry Hills in the early 20th Century – for our 2018 two-part production, directed by our Artistic Director Kip Williams. Join Kate as she introduces us to the raucous, often moving and utterly human world of the Darcy Family.
