The LSU School of Theatre Lab Season goes live and virtual with Samuel Beckett's absurdist play Happy Days. The moment the lights come up, a woman is revealed buried in a mound of dirt from the waist down. Her first words of "Another Heavenly Day!" seem to insist that the show is in fact aptly named, despite growing evidence in every moment to the contrary. Her chipper attitude doesn't diminish as she makes lighthearted conversation in an attempt to distract from her plight. However, nothing can seem to halt her slow descent the ground. Happy Days may seem absurd and otherworldly, but the struggles with isolation and despair are eerily familiar in these troubling times. LSU Theatre senior Brandon Persica is directing the production. It will be performed virtually through Zoom.

Tickets are available online.
