About This Show

South Coast Repertory presents Anna in the Tropics by Nilo Cruz, winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The play concerns the powerful effect art can have. A family of Cuban-Americans in pre-Depression Tampa spend their long days creating fine cigars and listening to the insightful reading of Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina, interpreted by a traditional Cuban “lector,” one who travels the countryside reading literature to residents. Juliette Carrillo directs.
