Maria Adelaide Amaral (born 1 July 1942, in Alfena) is a Portuguese Brazilian playwright, screenwriter, and novelist. A good deal of her plays concern disaffected urban professionals.[1] She has been classed as among the two major women playwrights of Brazil, the other being Leilah Assunção.[2]

In 1994, Maria Adelaide Amaral biographed the Brazilian comedienne Dercy Gonçalves. The book was titled Dercy de Cabo a Rabo. In 2012, Amaral adapted this book into the miniseries Dercy de Verdade.[3][4]

Despite her work as writer, she is perhaps best known to the public as an author of telenovelas, including the 2010 remake of Ti Ti Ti.[5]
