The Last Of The Haussmans
25th – 29th April 2023
hilarious and haunting
A funny, touching and at times savage portrait of a family full of longing that’s losing its grip.
Anarchic, feisty but growing old, high-society drop-out Judy Haussman remains in spirit with the ashrams of the 1960s. After an operation, she is joined by her wayward offspring, her sharp-eyed granddaughter, a local doctor and a troubled teenager. Over a few sweltering months they alternately cling to and flee a chaotic world of all-day drinking, infatuations, long-held resentments, free love and failure.
Stephen Beresford’s play The Last of the Haussmans was first staged at the National Theatre, London, in 2012, in a production starring Julie Walters and Rory Kinnear.
The Last of the Haussmans contains strong language and adult themes.
“A knockout – entertaining, sad and outrageous.” – Observer
