Virago’s “Sonia Flew” on Stage ‘Til June 1

“Sonia Flew,” a play directed by Alameda-based Virago Theatre’s artistic director Laura Lundy-Paine, is being performed on stage at the Phoenix Theatre in San Francisco through June 1.

Final shows are set for 8 p.m. tonight (May 24) and Saturday (May 25), as well as at 2 p.m. Sunday (May 26). The play will also be onstage next weekend at 8 p.m. Friday (May 31) and Saturday (June 1).

“Sonia Flew,” written by Melinda Lopez, tells the story of a woman who learns of her son’s decision to leave college, enlist in the military and fight against terror in Afghanistan. She struggles to come to terms with being forced to leave Cuba as a young girl with her own responsibilities as a mother facing uncertainty.
