Show Notes

×

A warm-hearted, humorous and affecting study of the unlikely relationship between an aging, crotchety white Southern lady, and a proud, soft-spoken black man. A long-run Off-Broadway success and an Academy Award-winning film.

Driving Miss Daisy is about the relationship of an elderly Southern Jewish woman, Daisy Werthan, and her African-American chauffeur, Hoke Coleburn, from 1948 to 1973. The play was the first in Uhry's Atlanta Trilogy, which deals with Jewish residents of that city in the early 20th century. The play won the 1988 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

“The play is sweet without being mawkish, ameliorative, without being sanctimonious.” —NY Times

“…a perfectly poised and shaped miniature on the odd-couple theme.” —NY Post

“Playwrights Horizons has a winner in this one…gives off a warm glow of humane affirmation.” —Variety

“DRIVING MISS DAISY is a total delight.” —NY Daily News.

This play is rated PG.
