We were there on a warm August night, no blankets needed. But they have them for $2 if you do.

Description

We are all alone in the face of death, and all alone in the face of life—how can this stark truth be funny? But in Samuel Beckett’s brilliant hands it is, as you’ll find out when you see Cal Shakes’ production of Happy Days. Artistic Director Jonathan Moscone brings the work of the Nobel Prize-winning Beckett to the Bruns stage for the very first time with this astounding portrait of a woman buried up to her waist in sand, and in the comically painful toil of her life.
