Three things you should know about Tobacco Road: 1. Based on the novel by Erskine Caldwell, the dramatic play tells the story of social and racial injustices in the South through the eyes of a dysfunctional family of Georgia sharecroppers. 2. The Depression-era Broadway hit is the second longest-running non-musical in Broadway history. 3. For one night only, you can experience a free reading of it at Pasadena's A Noise Within theater. Call to reserve tickets in advance and enjoy the play as a warm-up to the theater's forthcoming production of Grapes of Wrath, which will debut next month.
