HAPPY DAYS - THE GUTHRIE THEATER

"Rob Melrose's charming production of the 1961 minimalist play from the Irish auteur utilizes little more than a mound of dirt, a picturesque backdrop and two seasoned Guthrie veterans. The result is a stark and skillfully constructed take on a master's work."

-Ian Power

The Minnesota Daily


"Wingert may have been created especially for this role."
