This top rating television mini series is the dramatisation of Ruth Park's novel following the life and times of a poor Irish Australian family in the aftermath of World War II. This is the poignant saga of the poverty-stricken Darcys of number 12 1/2 Plymouth Street in Surrey Hills - a Sydney slum with its complement of gangs, brothels and sly grog shops.
Poor Man's Orange:
The continuing story of the Darcy family in Ruth Park’s poignant sequel to ‘The Harp in the South’. Twelve-and-a-half Plymouth Street, Surry Hills, Sydney: in this cramped, dirty, old house live the Darcy's. Hughie, his wife and teenaged daughter, live downstairs, while an upstairs room is occupied by their cheery elder daughter, her alcoholic husband and their little one. Two generations out of Ireland, the family still feels the deep melancholy of their homeland running through their veins.
