Join us for a stimulating theater presentation and discussion led by local actress and teaching artist Thomasina Petrus and Harry Waters Jr., Chair of the Theater Department at Macalester College. Actors will read from two scenes in “Anna in the Tropics” (including lead actress Nora Montanez), currently on stage at the Jungle Theater. The readings will be followed by a discussion of the themes, tying in current events, personal values and narratives, and stimulating critical thinking. “Anna in the Tropics,” winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, is set in a Cuban cigar factory in Florida in the 1920s. The cigars are hand-rolled, and the lectors read workers stories while they work. A lector starts reading them Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina, and the play starts to take on the form of Tolstoy’s play.
