Description: 
A Cuban cigar factory in Florida, 1929. A “lector,” or reader, arrives to entertain the workers with Anna Karenina while they hand­-roll the cigars. But Tolstoy’s novel about forbidden love unleashes their deepest, darkest desires. Meanwhile, the advent of cigar-­rolling machines heralds the end of a tradition.
 
WARNING: There will be a lit cigar onstage during this performance. Please be aware of possible exposure to cigar smoke.
