Happy Days

Winnie half gone to earth, only her head then.

Willie, avid reader of obits and ads and smut, on the other side.

Comforts of a day, of another day. Her prayer in the one, her song in the other (a music box before).

Incidental measures, the odd reminiscence, an anecdote in two parts, a story.

Willie in his hole more or less, Willie to her.

And all along, the sun in “stony places”.

Rosaleen Linehan (end credits give her director’s name at the Gate Theatre in this play, Karel Reisz), Richard Johnson.

Another credit identifies the location as Tenerife, Canary Islands.
