Michaelmas Week 6
On the South Devon coast, the Haussman family home stands dilapidated and derelict. Its chief occupant is Judy, an aging, anarchic hippy who – after a minor cancer operation – holds court, welcoming her children home. Libby, accompanied by her daughter, Summer, is waspish and resentful. Nick is flighty and nervous, a former drug addict with little to call his own. Over a few sweltering months, the Haussmans hash out their past differences, remember family dramas and infatuations, and day-drink the summer away.
Dealing with the legacy of the 1960s and the Baby Boomer generation, Stephen Bereford’s debut play captures the spirit of a generation, and the consequences in their wake.
