Directed by Craig Baldwin
Produced by Red Line Productions
The world seems to be ending. Every day, Winnie wakes up buried to the waist in a burnt-out post-apocalyptic wasteland, with nothing but the contents of her purse. To top it all off, her husband, Willie, has stopped talking to her. What is one to do in such isolation but get on with it?
Beckett’s absurdly funny, existential masterpiece takes on searing of-the-moment resonance in this strikingly intimate production directed by Craig Baldwin (The Aliens, John) featuring a hilarious and heart-breaking performance from Old Fitz fave Belinda Giblin (Doubt, Home and Away).
From Cat, Con and Alex:
“We are slammed back to earth, albeit buried under a large mound of dirt, in Samuel Beckett’s firebrand text Happy Days. This production will be brought to life by luminary of stage and screen Belinda Giblin under the direction of Craig Baldwin, who most recently worked together on Annie Baker’s John. We are so thrilled to have these two theatre makers who are at the top of their craft present Beckett at his existentially hilarious and ironic best in the intimacy of the Fitz.”
