  Abstract:   The main question that underlies my paper is the bridge between the written word and the theatre stage in Samuel Beckett’s dramatic texts. I propose to study the dramaturgical itineraries of Happy Days, by analyzing a set of recent stagings of this play. I will try to understand the continuity of Beckett’s theatre today, through sets of thematic approaches which seem fundamental in the stage recreation of this text. Confronting three different creations of Happy Days with important directors like Giorgio Strehler, Frederick Wiseman and Bob Wilson, I propose to demonstrate the importance of recreating Beckett dramaturgy.

Keywords: Samuel Beckett, Happy Days, Giorgio Strehler, Frederick Wiseman, Bob Wilson, staging strategies.
