At PlayMakers Rep, Winnie Gets That Sinking Feeling in “Happy Days” by Samuel Beckett

PlayMakers Repertory Company will kick off its ambitious 2010-11 season with a stellar PRC2 second-stage production of HAPPY DAYS, a 1961 masterpiece of the Theater of the Absurd, penned by avant-garde expatriate Irish playwright and 1969 Nobel Prize in Literature laureate Samuel Beckett (1906-89), on Sept. 8-12 in the Elizabeth Price Kenan Theatre in the Center for Dramatic Art at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Guest director Rob Melrose will stage this offbeat two-character comedy with two of PlayMakers Rep’s brightest stars, Julie Fishell and Ray Dooley, playing Winnie and Willie.
