The Lyttelton National Theatre will soon be the home of the new play by Stephen Beresford – “The Last of the Haussmans”, which focuses on the world inhabited by the character of Judy Haussman, portrayed by Julie Walters. It is likely to be a play that warrants plenty of attention, with high profile star Walters starring alongside Rory Kinear and Helen McCory and working under the direction of Howard Davies. As such, audiences will be able to experience a true London theatre production with some high profile performers and one of the capital’s leading directors.
Julie Walters, after all, has experienced a long and renowned career, which has included performances in movies like the “Harry Potter” series, “Mamma Mia!” and “Educating Rita”. Meanwhile, she is also familiar to those that have ventured to the theatre over the years, having appeared in stage roles like “All My Sons” at the National Theatre in 2000 and the stage version of “Educating Rita” for the Royal Shakespeare Company.
The plot of “The Last of the Haussmans” sees Judy Haussmans visited by members of her family following an operation. Haussman is a high society dropout and the family ventured to her to indulge in day drinking, resentments and infatuations – whilst simultaneously fleeing such ventures at the same time.
“The Last of the Haussmans” appears alongside “The Doctor’s Dilemma” at the Lyttelton National Theatre with a run lasting from Tuesday 19th June 2012 (previews from Tuesday 12th June 2012) to Sunday 16th September 2012.
