About "Sounds of The Cigar Factory"

Michele Moore’s acclaimed novel The Cigar Factory was inspired by interviews with her own family. Moore wrote the theatrical performance “Sounds of the Cigar Factory” based on Part One of her novel and directed its original performance in the Eastside neighborhood where the novel is set. “Sounds of the Cigar Factory” went on to be a sold out surprise hit at Charleston’s Piccolo Spoleto Festival, where it was performed at the Footlight Players Theatre.
