The actor talks to Heather Neill about her performance as Winnie in Samuel Beckett’s Happy Days (1961), set to return to the Young Vic, where the critically acclaimed show, directed by Natalie Abrahami, played to sold-out houses in 2014. Recorded at Motivation Sound Studios, north London, 13 January 2015.
