Nilo Cruz’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Anna in the Tropics takes place In Ybor City, Florida in 1929.  Infidelity, money problems, and violence spring to the surface as the family members grapple with their new found understanding of life and relationships.  Instead of discovering the love and acceptance they seek, the family is met with tragedy in the end.
