Anna in the Tropics

Winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Drama! Anna in the Tropics is a poignant and poetic play set in 1929 Florida in a Cuban-American cigar factory, where cigars are still rolled by hand, and “lectors” are employed to educate and entertain the 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.
