About This Show

Sonia’s parents, fearful of the new government, sent their only daughter from Cuba to the United States in 1961. Set in Minneapolis and Havana, a story of family unfolds across the generations as Sonia – now raising two children with her Jewish husband – struggles to come to terms with her past, her lost parents, her own children, and her adopted country. This Calderwood-commissioned play by local playwright and actress Melinda Lopez received its first reading at this year’s Breaking Ground Festival.

Nicholas Martin directs Sonia Flew, by Melinda Lopez. Presented by the Huntington Theatre Company.
