Samuel Beckett's Happy Days directed by Deborah Warner, with Fiona Shaw as Winnie.
Blazing light, scorched grass. Buried to above her waist and woken by a piercing bell, Winnie chatters away as she rummages in a bag, brushes her teeth, pulls out and kisses a revolver. Her husband, Willie, responds now and then, reads from an old paper, studies a pornographic postcard. A second bell signals the end of another happy day.
Written in 1960, Samuel Beckett's extraordinary play opened the Lyttelton Theatre in 1976.
