Cry It Out

Back Event May 17 @ 7 pm By City Spark

Capital Stage Presents the Sacramento Premiere of “Cry It Out” by Molly Smith Metzler Directed by Judith Moreland May 1 – June 2, 2024

Four months ago, Jessie was a corporate lawyer with a glamorous Manhattan life. Today, she is in dirty yoga pants, covered in breast milk, trying to comfort a screaming newborn. Isolated in a sleepy Long Island suburb while her commuter husband works long hours, Jessie is desperate to talk to anyone besides Food Network. When she spies a fellow new mom and neighbor, Lina, at the local Stop & Shop, she vaults over the cantaloupe to introduce herself. A comedy with dark edges that takes an honest look at the absurdities of being home with a baby, the power of female friendship, the dilemma of going back to work, and the effect class has on parenthood in America.

“A funny story that weaves together very different but highly meaningful stories from three new mothers.” —USA TODAY TICKETS: $25-$48 FEATURING: Carissa Meagher, Luisa Frasconi, Rinabeth Apostol, Jason Kuykendall PERFORMANCE LENGTH: 1 Hour, 40 Minutes, No Intermission SPONSORED BY: TED COBB
