Happy Days, by Samuel Beckett 

In the Baby Grand Theatre from Nov 1st till Nov 9th we will find Theatre Kingston’s Artistic Director buried up to her waist in sand. It is Samuel Beckett’s world of Happy Days and Rosemary Doyle will be playing the iconic role of Winnie, a perpetually optimistic force in a garden of the abyss. Happy Days reunites Theatre Kingston’s former Artistic Director Craig Walker and current Artistic Director Rosemary Doyle, who last worked together in Theatre Kingston’s 2001 production of Finnegan’s Wake, based on another brilliant Irish writer, James Joyce. Richard Sheridan Willis, Artistic Director of the St. Lawrence Shakespeare company rounds out this accomplished cast. Award winning set and costume designer Andrea Robertson, with the help of Adair Redish’s transformative lighting design will be turn the Baby Grand into the dystopian world of Beckett’s imagination.

“Happy Days” remains one of the most unsettling and unforgettable plays in the modern canon.”
