FOLLOWING THE SUCCESS OF A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, THE SKRIKER AND HAMLET, ROYAL EXCHANGE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR SARAH FRANKCOM AND ASSOCIATE ARTIST MAXINE PEAKE CONTINUE THEIR CREATIVE COLLABORATION WITH SAMUEL BECKETT’S SURREAL MASTERPIECE, HAPPY DAYS.

“the days go by, certain days, go quite by, the bell goes, and little or nothing said, little or nothing done. That is the danger. To be guarded against.”

Winnie is at the centre of a land-filled mound, staying put and seeing all. She’s armed with her handbag - complete with mirror, glasses and toothbrush, which are all part of her daily rituals. For Winnie, in spite of everything, this is going to be a happy day, armed with her lipstick… and a gun.
