HARP IN THE SOUTH had it’s world premier at Sydney Theatre Company this month, and has been described as a landmark event.

Directed by STC’s Artistic Director Kip Williams, and adapted from Ruth Park’s outstanding trilogy of novels by Kate Mulvany, the epic consists of two parts each lasting 3 hours.

David Fleischer has lent his considerable talent to set design, the play having been described as a ‘triumph of design and theatricality.’ Daily Review.

 

‘It is corralled with such career-defining dexterity by Kip Williams, the Sydney Theatre Company boss and director here, that the stitching is barely visible, the bum-numbing barely noticeable’ Jason Whittaker, Daily Review

 

‘This is theatre for which terms such as “big-hearted” and “sweeping” were invented.’ Audrey Journal

 

HARP IN THE SOUTH runs until 6 October, and tickets can be purchased here.
