Join fellow alumni for the Stanford Summer Theater's production of Samuel Beckett's "Happy Days", followed by a discussion with Rush Rehm '71, the Stanford Summer Theater artistic director!  

From the Stanford Summer Theater (SST) website:

We follow Wilde’s romantic comedy of manners with Samuel Beckett’s Happy Days, an extraordinary comedy of wasting away. The irrepressible Winnie sits buried to her waist in a mound of sand, trying to engage her slightly more mobile husband, Willie. In spite of growing trials and tribulations, Winnie carries on bravely, foolishly, winningly. Why is this so funny? How can Beckett make us laugh in spite of ourselves, succumbing to that “brief gale of laughter when we happen to see the old joke again?”

Beckett delivers a theatrical experience unparalleled in its comic precision and deep humor. SST veteran Courtney Walsh (The Wanderings of Odysseus, Oedipus, Faith Healer) takes on the demanding role of Winnie, with Don DeMico as Willie, in a production that travels to Paris and Montpellier, France in the fall.
