Description

Poignant and thought-provoking, yet also heart-warming, this moving account of two intertwined family dramas shows how political events impact ordinary lives.

Set in post 9/11 America and Cuba of the Castro revolution‚ Melinda Lopez’s play revolves around Sonia, cross-cultural matriarch of a mid-Western Jewish family, as she struggles with her son’s decision to join the Marines.

The emotions triggered transport her back 40 years to Havana, when Sonia’s parents made a heart-wrenching choice and sent their teenaged daughter to a new life in America.

Sonia Flew received its World Premiere production at the Huntington Theatre Company in Boston, which commissioned it, and has had subsequent productions at the Contemporary American Theatre Festival in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, and the Coconut Grove Playhouse in Miami.
