          "Samuel Beckett is an absolute master." - Irene Worth

        Suffused with tenderness, lucidity and humour, this Samuel Beckett play is a comedy in pure, music hall style. Legendary actress, Irene Worth, stars as Winnie, an optimist who deep down senses she has little to feel "happy" about. Irene Worth gives a tour-de-force performance as she chatters incessantly and cheerily on a variety of subjects. Winnie never allows a day to pass without looking her best and hoping for better. Worth portrays Winnie as the embodiment of humankind's nobler virtues: wise, just, majestic, and committed to her conviction that "this will have been a happy day", even though increasingly buried in a mound of sand!

        The play's world premiere was on 17 September 1961, at New York's Cherry Lane Theatre; the play arrived in England with a Royal Court production in November 1962. Felicity Kendal starred in a London revival in 2003 at the Arts Theatre, directed by Peter Hall.
