Anna in the Tropics

A poignant and poetic drama, Anna in the Tropics is set in 1929 in Ybro city, Florida, in a small Cuban American cigar factory where cigars are still rolled by hand and “lecotrs” are employed to educate and entertain the workers. When a handsome new lector reads 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.
