Juliet Stevenson returns to the Young Vic in Samuel Beckett’s Happy Days.
Directed by Natalie Abrahami, Olivier Award-winning stage and screen actress Juliet Stevenson takes on of one the great roles in Samuel Beckett’s surreal masterpiece Happy Days.
Happy Days plays for a strictly limited run at the Young Vic theatre from 13 February 2015 til 21 March 2015.
Trapped in a scorched wasteland with her detached husband, Winnie keeps despair at bay with ritual, song and her trusty lipstick. But is our buoyant, hopeful heroine in denial of her ever-diminishing world?
50 years on this powerful tale of resilience – and of a woman’s ability to survive against overwhelming odds – still shocks and amazes.
