Oakland Tech has been getting great publicity around their production of “Hamlet: Blood in the Brain”!
Playwright Naomi Iizuka wrote to Tech director Jessa Berkner: “I wanted to say how honored I am and happy that you’re directing HAMLET BLOOD IN THE BRAIN, and that it’s been a good process. I wish I could see it and meet everyone in person to thank and congratulate them. In the meantime, please know that I’m sending good thoughts to you and everyone working on the production.”
