Staged Reading: The Cigar Factory

Charleston author Michele Moore has turned her award-winning novel, The Cigar Factory, into a two-act play, to be presented as a staged reading February 21 at 7:30pm and February 22 at 3pm at the Queen Street Playhouse (home of the Footlight Players). Based on the story of the Charleston Cigar Factory and two working class Catholic women – one African American, one Irish American – who chose to fight the system together, at a time when society was determined to keep them apart. The reading is sponsored by the City of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs, and the City of North Charleston Cultural Arts Program.
