Description

A Latino-Jewish family celebrates the holidays in this warm-hearted play by Melinda Lopez about how the world shapes our families and how families shape our lives. Sonia, a Cuban immigrant raising two children with her Jewish husband in Minneapolis, is preparing for her Christmas and Hanukkah celebrations. When war intrudes on her son’s life, Sonia must reconcile her childhood memories of Operation Pedro Pan, a political maneuver that separated her and thousands of other Cuban children from their parents.

Directed by associate artist Jessica Thebus, Sonia Flew features ensemble member Alan Wilder with Sandra Delgado, Sandra Marquez, Andrew Perez, Vilma Silva and Jeff Still.
