Happy Days: Act 2

Written by Samuel Beckett

Winnie: "Oh this is a happy day, this will have been another happy day! [Pause] After all. [Pause] So far." 

     This performance was done as a workshop performance and followed coronavirus restrictions during performance and rehearsal. 


In the second act Winnie is embedded up to her neck and can move only her eyes. Willie lives and moves—on all fours—behind the mound, appearing intermittently and replying only occasionally into Winnie’s long monologue, but the knowledge of his presence is a source of comfort and inspiration to her, and doubtless the prerequisite for all her “happy days.”
