About the play:

It is 1929 in Ybor City, Florida. A Cuban-American family working in a cigar factory eagerly awaits the arrival of their new lector, Juan Julian, who has been hired to read to the family during their long days of rolling cigars by hand. His arrival is a cause for celebration, but when he begins to read aloud from Tolstoy’s classic novel, 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. Shimmering with passion and poetry, this production is not to be missed!
