HAPPY DAYS at Riverside Studios for 2021

Lisa Dwan stars in Samuel Beckett's great work, directed by Trevor Nunn

Anthology Theatre, in association with Riverside Studios, presents the 60th anniversary production of Samuel Beckett’s masterpiece Happy Days. Trevor Nunn directs Lisa Dwan as Winnie, continuing their collaboration following Eh Joe at Jermyn Street Theatre. The production opens at Riverside Studios, where the playwright rehearsed Endgame in 1980 and Waiting for Godot in 1984.

Winnie and her husband Willie are stuck in every sense of the word. Endless days and nights pass by while they struggle on, with only each other for company. 

Samuel Beckett’s world-renowned play Happy Days comes to the Riverside Studios in a landmark 60th anniversary production. Brought to you by a multi-award-winning creative team, with direction from Trevor Nunn and starring ‘Beckett interpreter of the first rank’ (Observer) Lisa Dwan as our heroine Winnie, this is a spirited and triumphant revival most pertinent for our unparalleled times.

This enduring, potent, and lively tale of existential limbo presents a playful, but poignant look, at human strength and survival amidst the most surreal of circumstances. 

This brand-new production of Beckett’s two hander will be staged in a Covid safe environment following government advice and adhering to social distancing guidelines.

Happy Days marks the first production from recently relaunched Anthology Theatre Productions. With a long history of investment and co-production, Anthology Theatre has repositioned itself as a full-scale production company, producing and managing its own work under newly appointed Managing Director & Executive Producer, Lil Lambley, and is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
