NT Live: The Last of the Haussmans
From the National Theatre's third season of live recordings direct from the London stage, this is Stephen Beresford's new play The Last of the Haussmans. Screenings are limited.
"Anarchic, feisty but growing old, high society drop-out Judy (Julie Walters) remains in spirit with the Ashrams of the 1960s while holding court in her dilapidated Art Deco house on the Devon coast.
"After an operation, she’s joined by wayward offspring Nick (Rory Kinnear) and Libby (Helen McCrory), sharp-eyed granddaughter Summer, local doctor Peter, and Daniel, a troubled teenager who makes use of the family’s crumbling swimming pool. Together they share a few sweltering months in this chaotic world of all-day drinking, infatuations, long-held resentments, free love and failure." (National Theatre)
