About the play: Anna in the Tropics is a Pulitzer Prize-winning, 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.

 

Ground Floor Theatre is committed to inclusivity and as such unless specifically called for in the script,
we cast without consideration to ability, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, size, or shape.
