Samuel Beckett, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, is considered one of the greatest writers of the 20th century. The Irish novelist, playwright, director, and poet is best known for exposing a bleak view of the human condition like "Waiting for Godot." Utilizing dark humor, Beckett exposed the hilarity of existential dread. "Happy Days," presented by the Cocoon Theatre, is typically minimalist fare from the master. The play involves only two characters: Willie (Doug Woolley) and Winnie (Marguerite San Millian), who must face sorrow in a struggle for hope. Direction by Andres San Millian. Takes place March 7 to 23 in Rhinebeck. Mature audiences. Limited seating. (845) 876-6470; Cocoontheatre.org.
