The dark contemporary comedy follows Becky (O’Connell), a modern-day descendent of accused witch Rebecca Nurse. Becky, who works at the local Salem witch museum, seems to be dogged by bad luck as she looks for love and redemption through spells, pills, and a bartender named Bob (White).
Becky Nurse of Salem has sets by Riccardo Hernandez, costumes by Emily Rebholz, lighting by Barbara Samuels, sound by Palmer Hefferan, and projections by Tal Yarden. Suzzy Roche is the composer, and Caroline Englander is the stage manager.
Ruhl is also the playwright of How to Transcend a Happy Marriage; The Oldest Boy; In the Next Room, or the vibrator play (Pulitzer Prize finalist); The Clean House (Pulitzer Prize finalist, The Susan Smith Blackburn Prize); For Peter Pan on her 70th Birthday; Stage Kiss; Dear Elizabeth; Passion Play, a cycle; Dead Man’s Cell Phone (Helen Hayes Award); Melancholy Play; Eurydice; Orlando; and Late: a cowboy song.
