The Last of the Haussmans is Stephen Beresford's first play. Using a narrative structure that is similar to Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard, we are transported to a crumbling 1930's Art Deco house on the South Devon Coast of England in the near present. The play examines the fate of the revolutionary generation and offers a funny, touching and at times savage portrait of a family full of longing that is losing its grip. After an operation, anarchic, feisty, high-society drop-out Judy Haussman is joined by her wayward offspring, her sharp-eyed granddaughter, the local doctor and a troubled teenage neighbour. 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.
