Hamlet: Blood in the Brain” is a modern, local re-telling of the popular tragedy. It’s set in Oakland in the late 1980s.
I don't think I'll see it again. It was really good, but too close to home. Too real. I wasn't in Oakland in the late 80s but that time period certainly set up parts of Oakland for what I have seen - all the violence, drugs, and tragedy.
If you check it out, please let me know what you think.
