Julie Walters plays Judy Haussman, with Rory Kinnear and Helen McCrory as her children, in Stephen Beresford's eagerly-anticipated new play The Last of the Haussmans, recorded live on the National Theatre stage earlier in 2012: a funny, touching and sometimes savage portrait of a family that's losing its grip. 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 (Kinnear) and Libby (McCrory), sharp-eyed granddaughter Summer, local doctor Peter (Matthew Marsh), and Daniel (Taron Egerton), 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. Official Web Site
