More About The Last of the Haussmans - Tangled Parent-Child Relations
On the Devon seaside, aging hippie Judy Haussman resides in a dilapidated Art Deco house maintaining a diluted version
of a 60s-era Ashram lifestyle. Visited by her estranged children - the reproachful single mother Libby and former heroin addict
Nick - during the lazy summer months, tension between generations comes to a head as parenthood clashes with younger ideals.
Genuinely funny and moving, The Last of the Haussmans brings to light the evergreen subjects of parent-child relations,
of love and scorned souls. In the stirring and at times harsh portrait of a family in distress, Stephen Beresford brings out
the best of his characters and let them speak without judgment. With polite nods to Chekhov's classic The Cherry Orchard,
The Last of the Haussmans is as entertaining as it is thoughtful.
