Listen Back To Hugo

An introduction to Hugo.

Hugo reports on the slightly odd events that unfold in his country house. His life is dominated by his interaction with his wife Daphne, her mother Myrtle, and a coterie of relatives. 

The household includes Soledad, a Catalan woman who was previously their au pair.

She is now married to Hugo’s nephew Lorcán, who proudly holds the BA(Mod) from TCD. Soledad and Lorcán are the parents of twins, Síofra and Iarla. Great things are expected of them. Soledad was succeeded as au pair by Tadeusz, a young Polish man.

Hugo and Daphne have two adult twin children, Jolyon and Irene, though Irene has never been present, and we learn of her life at second hand. Jolyon’s American friend Randy pops up from time to time.

The family are self-consciously cultured by temperament. Daphne has artistic aspirations, and her sister Heather’s husband has delusions of being an intellectual. The household members have the ordinary appetites for the best of radio. They are always at the forefront of fashion in their television preferences. They augment this through repeated immersion in High Culture. They are passionate about opera, interested in theatre and have been known to visit art galleries.
