Night 2 of the RTE All Ireland Drama Festival 2023

Happy Days is a play in two acts, written by Beckett. Viewed positively by critics, it was named in The Independent as one of the 40 best plays of all time.

Winnie, buried to her waist, follows her daily routine and prattles to her husband, Willie, who is largely hidden and taciturn. Her frequent refrain is “Oh this is a happy day.” Later, in Act II, she is buried up to her neck, but continues to talk and remember happier days. For the audience, “Happy Days” will produce many questions, answered and unanswered by the script and a theatrical experience like none other
