'Beresford's drama is frequently a hoot... you can't not enjoy' - Metro 'Beresford's debut is thoughtful and fresh, delighting in the savagery of a dysfunctional family... deliciously comical... drips with smart lines' - Evening Standard 'A taut, touching and genuinely amusing portrait of generations of family damage... gloriously textured. utterly authentic... hilarious and haunting.' - The Stage 'quickfire jokes... memorable characters' - British Theatre GuideVom Verlag:
Anarchic, feisty but growing old, high society drop-out Judy Haussman 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 and Libby, 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 as they alternately cling to and flee this louche and chaotic world of all-day drinking, infatuations, long-held resentments, free love and failure. The only thing to be in life is a rebel. Published alongside the world premiere at National Theatre, starring Julie Walters (June 2012).
