Winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
Florida, 1929: a Cuban-American family eagerly awaits the arrival of a new lector to read aloud to their cigar factory workers. When he introduces them to the classic Anna Karenina, a hot and humid Tampa factory starts to mirror the scandalous Russian aristocracy of Tolstoy’s classic. Love, revenge, passion, and tragedy abound in this award-winning drama.
