"... Fascinating ... a gorgeously intimate spectacle"
- Sacramento Bee

"Even after 120 years, this play is still breathtaking"
- Capital Public Radio

"When you have two of the most talented women in localtheater working together to breathe life into one of drama’s most fascinating female characters, you’re bound to come out with a memorable production."
- Sacramento News & Review

"A remarkable and very professional mounting of a challenging play that wears its reputation as a classic very well -- the kind of thing you’ve generally had to drive to the Bay Area to see during the past 15 years. If serious drama is your cup of tea, you don’t want to miss this one."
- Davis Enterprise

Directed by Janis Stevens

In May, Capital Stage will present a brand new adaptation of one of the world’s most famous plays. Based on premise that there is a secret, sometimes unconscious, world of desires and motives that is often much more powerful than the rational one.  This new Capital Stage adaptation of Ibsen's theatrical masterpiece takes a bracing look at Hedda’s tormented desire for escape and her yearning for individual and spiritual freedom.   


CAPchats dates with artistic staff following performances on May 19, May 26, May 30 & June 9.
