Winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Anna in the Tropics is a poignant and poetic play set in Florida in 1929 in a Cuban-American 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.

Ground Floor Theatre will collaborate with Deaf Austin Theatre to present The Last Five Years. The Drama Desk award-winner is Jason Robert Brown’s intimate window into a couple’s doomed marriage. Since its Off-Broadway premiere in 2002, Brown’s funny, poignant, and devastatingly honest two-character production has enraptured audiences around the world with its spellbinding and emotional score and libretto. This collaboration will be presented in both English and American Sign Language.
