Second Stage 2018-2019 Season

Anna in the Tropics by Nilo Cruz
A poignant and poetic new Pulitzer-Prize-winning 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.
Dates: September 27 – 29 at 8 pm, September 30 at 3 pm

Sweat by Lynn Nottage
Filled with warm humor and tremendous heart, the Pulitzer-Prize-winning play SWEAT tells the story of a group of friends who have spent their lives sharing drinks, secrets, and laughs while working together on the factory floor. But when layoffs and picket lines begin to chip away at their trust, the friends find themselves pitted against each other in a heart-wrenching fight to stay afloat.
Dates: November 15 – 17 at 8 pm, November 18 at 3 pm

[title of show] with Music by Jeff Bowen and Book by Hunter Bell
