The Yale Repertory staging of Happy Days officially opened May 4 at Theatre for a New Audience. Oscar winner Dianne Wiest and Jarlath Conroy star in the Samuel Beckett play, directed by James Bundy.

Flip through photos of the show below:

In Happy Days, Wiest plays Winnie, buried up to her waist and sinking into the earth. The production marks a return to Beckett’s work for Wiest, who appeared in the U.S. premiere of Footfalls earlier in her career. The actor says that she waited 30 years to play Winnie, a character she describes as “the Hamlet for actresses.”
