About the play
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.
