Cracked Up

Friday, September 13 - Thursday, September 19, 2019

With courage and, of course, humor, master impressionist, comedian, and Saturday Night Live veteran Darrell Hammond reveals his journey in discovering a history of childhood trauma that was locked away for over 40 years. Brilliant in the spotlight, yet behind the scenes he was misdiagnosed and wrongly medicated for decades, struggling with drugs, alcohol, self harm and flashbacks. This moving portrait artfully crafts an inspiring story of hope and resilience.
