About The Event


Written, created and performed by Judge Gloria G. Coco Ret.


June is Immigrant Heritage Month giving people across the United States an opportunity to explore their own heritage and celebrate the shared diversity that forms the unique story of America.

FINDING UNCLE ALFIO, a one woman play at Maple Grove

It began with a death-bed plea: “Gloria, find my little brother, Alfio.”

The first Italian-American woman to sit on the bench in Chicago, Gloria Coco, began the search for an uncle no one had seen since 1921. Her mother’s four-year old brother had died on Ellis Island while the family waited for their papers to begin their new lives as Americans. Her grandmother never knew what had happened to her baby. Gloria knew her mother would not rest until the mystery was solved.

As Judge Coco uncovers the truth she discovers a horrible secret and the fate of so many children that came through Ellis Island in those turbulent years for a nation of immigrants. Join her in the journey of her family’s history and the not-so-distant past that many people today can share. Don’t miss this heart-wrenching true story performed by Judge Coco in her acclaimed one woman play.

Gloria’s story will move you and "Finding Uncle Alfio," will haunt you . . .

The Honorable Judge Gloria Coco, author, writer, and actor, will perform the New York City premiere of her one woman show, "Finding Uncle Alfio" at the Center at Maple Grove Cemetery on June 16, 2018 at 3pm.

One performance only! Free admission but call in reservations required!

Q & A after the performance and a reception to meet Judge Coco will follow.
