Anna in the Tropics

a scene from Anna in the Tropics

November 20–23, 2014


This poetic Pulitzer Prize-winning play captures 1929 Florida, when cigars were still rolled by hand and “lectors” were employed to educate and entertain the workers. When the new lector reads aloud from Anna Karenina, he unwittingly becomes a catalyst in the lives of his listeners, for whom Tolstoy, the tropics and the American Dream prove a volatile combination.
