Wordsmiths Books hosts Second Sundays with Working Title Playwrights (WTP). On the second Sunday of each month, a contemporary play is selected for reading aloud followed immediately by discussion. There is no charge to participate, and it's open to anyone who wants to read exciting modern plays.
This month, WTP's Second Sunday Playreading Group turns the spotlight on Nilo Cruz's Anna in the Tropics. It's a poignant and poetic new play set in Florida in 1929 in a CubanAmerican cigar factory, where cigars are still rolled by hand and "lectors" are employed to educate and entertain the workers. The arrival of a new lector is a cause for celebration, but when he begins to read 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. Anna in the Tropics was the winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize.
Please join us for a lively reading and discussion of this contemporary masterwork. It's FREE! It's FUN!
