Kaczorowski In The Tropics

The action takes place in a cigar factory in Ybor City, Florida, circa 1929. You can feel the heat permeate the air as the new lector, a person hired by the factory workers to read books and newspapers to them, arrives from Cuba, bringing with him the sense of hope and possibility for something beyond the dreariness of their daily lives. The lector is the pivotal character in Nilo Cruz's poetic drama, Anna In The Tropics, winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
