Happy Days

Suffused with tenderness, lucidity and humor, this Samuel Beckett play is a comedy in pure, music hall style. Legendary actress, Irene Worth, stars as Winnie, an optimist who deep down senses she has little to feel "happy" about. Irene Worth gives a tour-de-force performance as she chatters incessantly and cheerily on a variety of subjects. Winnie never allows a day to pass without looking her best and hoping for better. Worth portrays Winnie as the embodiment of humankind's nobler virtues: wise, just, majestic, and committed to her conviction that "this will have been a happy day."
