Actress/Author BRENDA ADELMAN’S mother was shot and killed by her father and then her father quickly took a new bride, her aunt. (her mother’s sister). Brenda’s one-woman show My Brooklyn Hamlet is about the power of forgiving the unforgivable.

On a less dramatic scale, although equally shocking, author/storyteller MARIANA WILLIAMS delivers the comic relief. She undergoes budget plastic surgery with a doctor practicing out of his suburban home in Park City, Utah.
