Written By: Samuel Beckett
A play in two acts, this play focuses on Winnie, buried to waist, as she goes about her daily routine.
Winnie’s buoyant optimism shields her from the harsh glare of the inevitable in Beckett’s unforgettable masterpiece of modern theater.
Often referred to as “the Hamlet for actresses,” Winnie is a mountain of a role, both physically and emotionally. A summit part for Milwaukee’s virtuosic actor, Laura Gordon.
“HAPPY DAYS remains an absurdly funny and boundlessly compassionate portrait of the human spirit.” - New York Times
