Anna in the Tropics Oct 25th
from 02:00 PM to 04:00 PM
Set in 1929, this play tells the story of a family of cigar workers whose lives are changed by the arrival of a new lector. As the new lector, Juan Julian, reads Anna Karenina to the workers, the spirit of Tolstoy’s novel affects them. With each chapter, new desires and jealousies erupt in the factory. Even the novel’s deadly love triangle starts to play itself out onstage. The play raises the dichotomy of a time when the sound of a human voice reading poetry is about to be replaced by the percussive sound of a factory full of machines.
