Happy Days

A play that makes you rethink happiness

Olivier Award-winning stage and screen actress Juliet Stevenson (Truly Madly Deeply, Death And The Maiden) takes on one of the great roles in Samuel Beckett's surreal masterpiece Happy Days, directed by Natalie Abrahami. 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 and this powerful tale of resilience – and of a woman's ability to survive against overwhelming odds – still shocks and amazes. Band A tickets include a free drink.
