SpeakEasy Stage Company presents the Pulitzer Prize-winning Anna in the Tropics, by Nilo Cruz. A poignant and poetic new play set in a Cuban-American cigar factory in Florida in 1929, a time when cigars were still rolled by hand and "lectors" were employed to educate and entertain the workers by reading to them from classic works of literature. The arrival of a new lector is a cause for celebration, but when he begins to read 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.
