HAPPY DAYS
BY SAMUEL BECKETT. DIRECTED BY SARAH FRANKCOM. WITH MAXINE PEAKE.
25 MAY 2018 - 23 JUNE 2018
THE THEATRE

FOLLOWING THE SUCCESS OF A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, THE SKRIKER AND HAMLET, ROYAL EXCHANGE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR SARAH FRANKCOM AND ASSOCIATE ARTIST MAXINE PEAKE CONTINUE THEIR CREATIVE COLLABORATION WITH SAMUEL BECKETT’S SURREAL MASTERPIECE, HAPPY DAYS.
“THE DAYS GO BY, CERTAIN DAYS, GO QUITE BY, THE BELL GOES, AND LITTLE OR NOTHING SAID, LITTLE OR NOTHING DONE. THAT IS THE DANGER. TO BE GUARDED AGAINST.”
Winnie is stuck. Buried in a wilderness of scorched earth she survives the everyday with fragments of babbling optimism. But she has her armoury, the lipstick, the mirror and the bag.

From his cave her husband Willie hides in the shadows, as they both await the inevitable bell to ring in another happy day.

Matinees on Thurs & Sat at 2.30 (NOT Sat 26 May)
