About this show

Described alternately as Beckett's most cheerful work and his "song of rue," Happy Days is a bitterly humorous examination of humanity's tragic struggle for hope. A middle-aged woman, Winnie, finds herself increasingly submerged in a mound of earth. An incurable optimist, she uselessly follows the daily routine of her life. Over the passage of time, the few possessions left in her bag gradually dwindle and her only companion becomes more distant. There is no performance on July 4. There are additional performances on July 5 at 3pm & 8pm and July 6 at 3pm.
