Happy Days, by Samuel Beckett
Written 51 years ago, Happy Days is Samuel Beckett's
prescient comic vision of our preoccupations
and the earth's possible future.
Actress Mary Ewald and director John Kazanjian's powerful staging of Samuel Beckett's comedic and incisive reverie of the anxiety of existence. In Beckett's fourth full-length play --and his first with a female protagonist -- Winnie (Ewald) and Willie (Seanjohn Walsh) are stuck in a rut. But even though it's the end of shopping as we know it, the couple remain up-beat and maintain a full routine of stimulating activity to get them thru the day.
