"Happy Days"

Samuel Beckett's Happy Days - theatre to tickle your gray cells as well as your funny bone - will have four performances on October 20th, 21st and 22nd at 8:00 pm, with a Sunday 23rd matinee at 2:30 pm. Produced by award-winning actor/director Lyrr Descy and theatre veteran Ron Luce as part of the ARTS/West Presents series.

In Happy Days, Beckett explores with comic irony and pathos those aspects of the human condition informed by our essential isolation as individuals even within relationships; by the rituals to which we resort to give shape and meaning to our daily lives, the importance we place on structured time, the objects we use to trigger the memories on which our sense of identity depend, and the struggle to make sense of, and see order in, a perverse and chaotic universe. And still, as Beckett intimated, to go down singing... Award-winning actor/director Lyrr Descy reprises her role as Winnie in this rare Athens production of a Beckett classic. Come experience life through the senses and memories of the indomitable and ever optimistic Winnie-- and her Willie played by Athens theatre veteran Ron Luce.

Happy Days, 10/20/11-10/22/11 at 8:00pm, 10/23/11 at 2:30pm.
