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.
She is joined on stage for Happy Days by Lex Marinos, also a distinguished actor, writer and director, whose many credits include the films The Last Days of Chez Nous and Backyard Ashes.
Belinda and Lex first worked together some 40 years ago when Lex directed Belinda in Errol Flynn’s Great Big Adventure Book for Boys for the Nimrod Theatre. More recently they appeared together in the web-series called Bent 101.
