“Another heavenly day!”, exclaims Winnie to her quiet husband, as she executes her daily routines buried up to her waist in dirt. The more stuck she becomes, the more she insists everything is absolutely fine.

HAPPY DAYS was written in 1961 by Samuel Beckett as a reaction to an increasingly disconnected world and has since become a legendary piece in the absurdist theatre tradition.

In 2021 HAPPY DAYS takes on new, thought-provoking dimensions as the overwhelming effects of globalisation, climate change and the pandemic impact our lives.

Why Not Theatre Company has asked director Peter Dupont Weiss to bring Beckett’s iconic play to life for lovers of Beckett’s dark and humorous and universe and newcomers alike.
