Driving Miss Daisy
Sept. 6 – Sept. 23, 2018
by Alfred Uhry
This classic play focuses on elderly Jewish matron, Daisy Werthan, and her chauffeur, Hoke Coleburn, in mid-century Atlanta. At first, Daisy is none too happy about being forced to rely on a black man to get from one place to the next. Gradually, however, Hoke wins her over, and during the 25-year span of the play, the two develop a deep-rooted affection and mutual respect grounded in their own independence, strength, and stubborn integrity. This Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece is a delicate depiction of racial tensions, the passage of time, and the experience of aging.
