Young Vic Debut for Juliet Stephenson

Date Posted: 30/10/2013

Acclaimed stage and screen actor Juliet Stevenson (Truly Madly Deeply, Death and the Maiden, Duet for One) makes her Young Vic debut as Winnie in Samuel Beckett’s Happy Days, running from 23rd January to 22nd February.

Directed by Natalie Abrahami, Happy Days also stars David Beames as Willie.

In Happy Days Beckett conceived one of the most memorable opening images in theatre: that of a middle-aged woman buried up to her waist in a great mound of earth.

Trapped in a scorched wasteland with her detached husband, Winnie keeps despair at bay with ritual, song and her trusty lipstick. But is our buoyant, hopeful heroine in denial of her ever-diminishing world?
