Ruth Park's all-Australian epic has been reimagined as a two-part theatrical marathon by Kate Mulvany
Ruth Park's Surry Hills trilogy of The Harp in the South, Poor Man's Orange and Missus has been adapted for the screen multiple times before, but now Sydney Theatre Company is bringing the story of the Darcy family to life on stage.
There's a lot of story to get through across three novels, so adaptor Kate Mulvany has split her adaptation into two parts that you can watch in consecutive nights or across one day (with a dinner break in the middle). Altogether, it makes up over five hours of theatre, and is the company's big ticket show for 2018.
STC has pulled together a huge and stellar cast, including Luke Carroll, Heather Mitchell (Top Girls, Cloud Nine), Tara Morice (Strictly Ballroom), Bruce Spence and Helen Thomson. STC's artistic director, Kip Williams, will be creating the onstage world of Sydney as it once was, with designers Renée Mulder and David Fleischer.
