 THE FREDERIC WOOD THEATRE
presents
HAPPy DAYS
by
Samuel  Beckett
DIRECTED BY KLAUS STRASSMANN
DESIGNED BY DONN ELLIOTT
January U-22, 1966
The University of British Columbia
Department  of Theatre acters: Winnie, a woman of about fifty, and Willie, a
man af about sixty. In the first act Winnie is buried up
to her waist in a mound of earth, but still has the use
of her arms and a few earthly possessions - toothbrush,
tube of tooth paste, small mirror, revolver, handkerchief, spectacles; in the second act she is imbedded 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 to 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".
A veritable tour de force, Happy Days is as rich in
language as in thought -- for Beckett is above all a
poet — and a worthy successor to the author's earlier
dramatic works, Waiting for Godot, Endgame, and Krapp's
Last Tape.
