An African-American attorney with a successful career discovers she has an Iraqi half-sister she never knew about in award-winning playwright Wendy Graf's latest work. This hard-hitting drama about family conflict and clashing cultures stars L.A Weekly and NAACP Award-winner Diarra Kilpatrick as up-and-coming corporate attorney Julie Dolan, whose carefully constructed life begins to crumble when she meets her half-sister Neyla. Neyla, a violinist, has fled Iraq to audition for Julliard, but Julie suspects there is more to her story. Graf's fresh spin on racial relations gives each of its characters their own voice and point of view as they navigate in a world that has become interconnected and multicultural on every level.

Sona Tera Roman Hess gives us a window to a time that is bold and frightening, vivid and spectacular, fantastic and deeply resonating. In language that is in turn grandiose and quietly poetic, playwright Dennis Miles has redrawn archetypal characters, grasping for purpose in a world that has no place for them. With elements reminiscent of magical realism and Greek tragedy, Sona Tera Roman Hess is a story of surviving betrayal and rediscovering hope.
