ANNA IN THE TROPICS
By Nilo Cruz
Directed by Michael Serna
Produced by David Colley
ANNA IN THE TROPICS is a poignant and poetic play set in Florida in 1929 in
a Cuban-American cigar factory, where cigars are still rolled by hand and
“lectors” are employed to educate and entertain the factory workers. The
arrival of a new lector is a cause for celebration, but when he begins to read
aloud from Anna Karenina, he unwittingly becomes a catalyst in the lives
of his avid listeners, for whom Tolstoy, the tropics and the American dream
prove a volatile combination. Winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize.
