The play, based on Erskine Caldwells novel, Tobacco Road, was the most phenomenally successful production in the history of the American theatre. The novel itself has been one of the most widely read and discussed books of our time. Whatever controversies it has aroused, there has been no difference of opinion about its power and excitement as the chronicler of the folkways of the impoverished South, Erskine Caldwell has re-created a world and a people with courageous realism. He has given us, in Tobacco Road, a novel of extraordinary appeal and merit.

"The classic novel of a Georgia family undone by the Great Depression: “[A] story of force and beauty” (New York Post). Even before the Great Depression struck, Jeeter Lester and his family were desperately poor sharecroppers. But when hard times begin to affect the families that once helped support them, the Lesters slip completely into the abyss. Rather than hold on to each other for support, Jeeter, his wife Ada, and their twelve children are overcome by the fractured and violent society around them. Banned and burned when first released in 1932, Tobacco Road is a brutal examination of poverty’s dehumanizing influence by one of America’s great masters of political fiction." - Goodreads
