Becky Nurse of Salem is touted as a modern day dark comedy about a historical tragedy. Set in 2016 against the backdrop of the “Lock Her Up” era, Becky Nurse is at a pivotal point in her life after a stretch of adverse events — losing her job at the local witch museum and her daughter’s opioid overdose. She visits a local witch to help her, but like the witches of Macbeth and the fairy tales from childhood, what you wish for can come at a price. Is Becky’s misfortune caused by poor decisions, random luck, or a generational curse bestowed long ago? Fate awaits this October.

Becky Nurse (50s-60s),
