Written in 1960, Samuel Beckett's Happy Days returns to the National with Fiona Shaw and Deborah Warner, one of theatre's richest and most enduring working partnerships (Richard II, Electra, The Powerbook, The Waste Land, Medea).
Blazing light, scorched grass. Buried to above her waist and woken by a piercing bell, Winnie chatters away as she rummages in a bag, brushes her teeth, pulls out and kisses a revolver. Her husband, Willie, responds now and then, reads from an old paper, studies a pornographic postcard. A second bell signals the end of another happy day.
