Driving Miss Daisy

An acclaimed comedy-drama set against a backdrop of prejudice, inequality and the American Civil Rights movement.

Set in Atlanta, Georgia, the story begins when proud Daisy Werthan crashes her car and her son hires African-American driver Hoke Colburn. Daisy and Hoke's relationship gets off to a rocky start but, as times change over two decades, a profound friendship blossoms between them.

Made famous by the 1989 Academy Award-winning film starring Morgan Freeman, this Pulitzer Award-winning play by Alfred Uhry is an iconic and heart-warming tale of pride, friendship and a changing American society which has touched the hearts of millions on stage and screen.
