“ A tragicomic tale of love, heartbreak, and tobacco ”

Following the release of his latest movie, Orson Welles - renowned director and smoking aficionado - receives a celebratory box of cigars. As he indulges his habit, Welles comes to realise exactly what he's smoking: the final creations of Conchita Marquez, Cuba's finest cigar roller. Ranging from the heyday of the cigar industry to the glamorous heights of Hollywood's Golden Age, The Cigar that Fell in Love with a Pipe inventively combines romance, history, imagination and nicotine to ask the burning question: can love triumph over adversity, or does it all go up in smoke?

Like a fine cigar, rich, heady and ultimately irresistable
