Your Father kills your Mother... then marries your Aunt.
Could you forgive him?
This is Brenda Adelman’s true story of forgiving the unforgivable.
MY BROOKLYN HAMLET
A real-life Shakespearean tragedy in modern day Brooklyn.
Written by and starring Brenda Adelman
Directed by John Coppola
Produced by Michael Sonntag
Part family comedy, part Greek tragedy - My Brooklyn Hamlet is Brenda Adelman’s acclaimed one-woman show about family, murder, love, betrayal and the awesome power of forgiveness. In 1995, Adelman’s mother was shot and killed by her father and within months he married her aunt. This is a story about love and hate, passion and numbness, and how to find joy after you’ve lost everything.
