About this show

Sonia, a Cuban immigrant raising two children with her Jewish husband in Minneapolis, is preparing for her Christmas and Hanukah celebrations. When war intrudes on her son's life, Sonia must reconcile with her childhood memories of Operation Pedro Pan, a political maneuver that separated her and thousands of other Cuban children from their parents. Sonia Flew, by Melinda Lopez, is a funny, warm-hearted play that explores how the world shapes our families, and how families shape our lives. Jessica Thebus directs.
