With thanks to the Blue gallery folks who helped with a story in act II:
Salem Theater Company presents Judith Black’s Bittersweet Midnight
Scorching a path from local history and hysteria to contemporary hilarity and hysterics this nationally acclaimed storyteller explores the power of female hungers and relationships - both here and in the hereafter.
This fresh and gripping vantage point onto the witch trials is firmly grounded in Marblehead’s Old Burial Hill. From the rum and fisher folk to the south you will emerge with a new window onto this time and place that resonates in the here and now.
This vivid tale is further enlivened by the music of Betsy Rose and the musicianship of Vince O’Donnell and Bill Smith.
Act 2 is a trio of comedic contemporary tales exploring a holy trilogy; Women’s compulsive relationships with food, sex, and their mothers!

Written and performed by Judith Black. Directed by John Fogle.

September 30 – October 16, Wed. – Sat. 7:30 p.m., Sun. 3:00 p.m.
