DRIVING MISS DAISY by Alfred Uhry
Pulitzer Prize-winning, DRIVING MISS DAISY is set in Atlanta and spans twenty-five years, from 1948 to 1973. When Daisy Wertham, a stubborn, elderly Southern widow, crashes her new car into the neighbor’s garage, her son, Boolie, forces her to take on a chauffeur. He employs Hoke Coleburn, much to her chagrin. At first, Daisy refuses to rely on a black man to get her from one place to the next but gradually Daisy’s prejudices are broken down and, against all odds, he becomes her best friend. Sean Smith makes his dictorial debut with THE ALL in this Alfred Uhro delicate drama. This is a part of our 5-Show Season.
