Arts Theatre, West End and Touring

By Samuel Beckett

Directed by Peter Hall

 'For those willing to open up their minds to Happy Days, the reward is a memorable performance in a wonderful labyrinthine set designed by Lucy Hall.'

Philip Fisher, British Theatre Guide

 

' With a striking set by [Lucy Hall ] reinvigorates the shock value of that now classic metaphor for life as a process of gradual entombment. We are presented with a more intrusive, aerial perspective on Winnie than normal.

She juts out from the centre of a tilted-up spiral of earth that looks like the electric ring of a Baby Belling as magnified and reimagined by the Surrealist movement.' 

Paul Taylor, The Independent
