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.

Happy Days

Roda Theatre

Academy Award® winner Dianne Wiest plays Winnie in Samuel Beckett’s masterpiece Happy Days. With her husband Willie (Michael Rudko) increasingly out of reach and the earth itself threatening to swallow her whole, Winnie’s buoyant optimism shields her from the harsh glare of the inevitable in this absurdly funny and boundlessly compassionate portrait of the human spirit. The New York Times declares Wiest is “extraordinary,” capturing both the humor and the heartbreak of one of Beckett’s most popular plays in this stunning Yale Repertory Theatre production.
