Samuel Beckett's Happy Days, Princeton University's Fund for Irish Studies

Friday March 5, 2021
4:30 PM

A filmed production of Samuel Beckett's Happy Days ("One of the most unforgettable plays in the modern canon." –The New York Times), produced by The Wild Project of New York's East Village in association with Princeton University's Fund for Irish Studies in recognition of this modernist masterpiece's 60th anniversary. In the ultimate emblem of perseverance, Beckett's Winnie, a tour de force of charm and grit helplessly buried up to her waist in the ground, endures the wearisome humdrum of endless, interchangeable days. And now, speaking to an audience who has faced a year of quarantine, the play endures as well. Featuring Princeton alumni Tessa Albertson and Jake Austin Robertson and directed by alumnus Nico Krell.
