2009/10 Season

Happy Days
By Samuel Beckett
Directed by David O'Connor
September 24 - October 18, 2009

Since the Lantern's first-ever production of Beckett's Waiting for Godot in 1994, we've built a reputation for approaching major works in new ways. Whether you love the theater of the absurd or simply appreciate the Lantern's refreshingly direct approach to modern classics, you won't want to miss Happy Days, in which Beckett's groundbreaking, uniquely modern character struggles to maintain her irrational cheerfulness in the face of ridiculous difficulties. Winnie, the optimist against all odds, fights for her very survival in this surprisingly funny and affecting production, perfect for the Lantern's intimate space.

"A thoroughly satisfying production." –Pamela Riley, Broad Street Review  [More]

"The remarkable Mary Elizabeth Scallen somehow manages to demonstrate simultaneously both the importance and the irrelevance of words. But what words!" –Dan Rottenberg, Broad Street Review  [More]

"Scallen takes the most unpromising and unflattering role of the season and delivers a thoroughly comprehensive and engaging performance ." –EDGE Philadelphia  [More]

"Mary Elizabeth Scallen does a bang-up job." –Philadelphia Inquirer
