Please Note: This production’s run has ended.

A bewitching black comedy

Life’s not so charming for Becky Nurse, a modern descendant of an executed Salem “witch.” She’s been fired from her job, troubled by her granddaughter’s boyfriend, is pining for a married man, and taking pain pills to cope after her daughter’s overdose. To reverse her bad fortune, she consults an eccentric local witch … leading to shocking, funny, and even disturbing results. Becky’s life transforms into a messy dark comedy that explores how far one woman will go to hold onto what she holds dear. Playwright Sarah Ruhl returns to Trinity Rep’s stage with this enchanted exploration of what is real, what is right, and what is redemptive.   

Becky Nurse of Salem runs in rep with The Good John Proctor.
