In a desert landscape, a woman, Winnie, is buried up to her waist, in a mound of earth that, little by little, will cover her up to her neck. Behind her, her husband, Willie, mostly hidden from the public eye. Winnie seems to candidly ignore her situation and gives herself to occupying another “beautiful day”: she prays, prepares herself, talks, revisits memories, manipulates everyday objects, kept in a suitcase beside her, addresses Willie, who, very rarely, mutters anything.

In Beautiful Days! (Happy Days), Samuel Beckett continues his search for a meaning to existence. Exploring the meta-theatrical aspect of Beckett’s text and its tragicomic dimension, the desert landscape summoned by Beckett is, in this version, a theater in ruins and the actors two old clowns buried in its rubble.

The staging by Sandra Faleiro, with Cucha Carvalheiro in the role of Winnie, is back at Teatro São Luiz.
