Your favorite late-nite nun returns with a laugh-packed holiday-themed show. Hilarity ensues as Sister tackles the question that has been puzzling historians throughout the ages: What happened to the Magi's gold? We already know that Mary put the frankincense and myrrh to use as potpourri to make the stable smell better. Think CSI: Bethlehem as Sister engages the audience -- you! -- to help her solve the mystery of the gold through a forensic examination of the nativity scene. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
- “This is quite a takeoff!” --Boston Globe
When Sonia learns of her son's decision to leave college, enlist in the military and fight against terror in Afghanistan in the weeks following 9/11, memories of her own childhood overwhelm her. She struggles to reconcile being forced as a young girl to leave Cuba at the dawn of Fidel Castro's rule with her own responsibilities as a mother facing uncertainty.
<p>Set between post-revolutionary Cuba and post-9/11 America, Sonia Flew telescopes the large cultural and political forces of an historic moment to examine their impact on the intimate lives of ordinary men and women. </p>
<p>Sonia is a Cuban-American woman smuggled as a child out of Cuba and into the United States as a part of Operation Pedro Pan. Secure in a world filled with parental duty and Jewish tradition, Sonia's existence is fragile, yet peaceful. </p>
<p>But when terrorism strikes American soil and Sonia's only son enlists in the military, Sonia must find a way to come to terms with her past, her lost parents, her own children and her adopted country - or risk losing everything that she loves.
