Three Days of Rain
The title of this Richard Greenberg play is also the enigmatic first words written in a sparse journal of a renowned architect named Ned. The journal is found by the architect’s emotionally unbalanced son Walker, who is desperate for answers to his own wrecked life and for a peek into his distant, and now dead, father’s mind. This is a fascinating and complex journey of family dysfunctions, personal perspectives, and buried secrets. The small space of Capital Stage is a perfect venue for this intimate narrative told by six characters, portrayed by three talented actors.
Capital Stage; 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 7 p.m. Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday; $20-$24. On the Delta King, 1000 Front Street in Old Sacramento; (916) 995-5464, www.capitalstagecompany.com. Through May 13.
