Anna in the Tropics

By Nilo Cruz

Winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize, 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 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.

Anna in the Tropics contains strong sexual themes and mild violence, and is intended for mature audiences.  Parental guidance is recommended for audience member under 16 years of age.
