Alfred Uhry’s Pulitzer Award-winning comedy-drama is an entertaining and heart-warming story of a growing friendship against the backdrop of the American Civil Rights movement.

Daisy Werthan is a proud and wilful Southern-Jewish widow, who writes-off her car and is made by her son to rely on African-American driver Hoke Colburn. Daisy and Hoke’s relationship gets off to a rocky start, but over the course of two decades and thousands of miles, a profound friendship blossoms between them.

Made famous by the 1989 Academy Award-winning film starring Morgan Freeman, Driving Miss Daisy has touched the hearts of millions on stage and screen. Witty and humorous, it is an iconic story of pride, friendship and a changing American society.
