Becky Nurse of Salem

Peet's Theatre

Running time: 2 hours and 15 minutes, plus one 15-minute intermission

A world premiere by MacArthur “Genius” Grant winner Sarah Ruhl (In the Next Room (or The Vibrator Play); Eurydice), Becky Nurse of Salem is an offbeat dark comedy that follows a woman coming to terms with her family’s legacy and finding her voice in our “lock her up” era.
