Driving Miss Daisy

A brand new production of Pulitzer Prize, Academy and Tony Award winning playwright Alfred Uhry’s acclaimed comedy drama, marks 30 years since the play first premiered. From its landmark off-Broadway production in 1987 to the remarkable success of the 1989 film version, which was the winner of four Academy Awards including Best Picture, Driving Miss Daisy has touched the hearts of millions worldwide. Starring Dame Siân Phillips as Daisy and Derek Griffiths as Hoke with direction by Richard Beecham. When elderly widow Daisy Werthan crashes her car one day in 1948, her son hires her a chauffeur, an African-American named Hoke Colburn. Daisy and Hoke’s relationship gets off to a rocky start, but as times change across a 25-year backdrop of prejudice, inequality and civil unrest, a profound and life-altering friendship blossoms in this acclaimed comedy drama.
