Darlinghurst Nights explores the lives of seven Sydneysiders struggling to make a go of things in Depression-era King’s Cross.
Inspired by the poems of Kenneth Slessor, and the mysterious drowning of his friend, Joe Lynch, writer Katherine Thomson (Diving for Pearls) and composer Max Lambert (Miracle City) capture the burgeoning Australian spirit and the unique mishmash of the bohemian, the criminal and the aspirational that was Darlinghurst in the 1920s and 30s.
