No Script: The Podcast | S6 Episode 2: “Anna in the Tropics” by Nilo Cruz

January 18, 2021

Pulling again from the robust library of Pulitzer Prize-winning scripts, Jackson and Jacob return for the second episode of Season 6! "Anna in the Tropics" by Nilo Cruz is a delightful, poetic, and highly engaging play about a time when cigars were hand rolled and lectors still read aloud from great novels. When a new lector arrives at a family cigar factor in Tampa, he brings along Tolstoy's great novel "Anna Karenina." How will the novel disrupt the patterns of the factory?
