Driving Miss Daisy
Mar 21 - Apr 6 , 2014 • Theatre Charlotte
- $25 - $27
Comedy/Drama by Alfred Uhry
Winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize, Driving Miss Daisy takes place in the deep South beginning in 1948, just prior to the civil rights movement. When Daisy Werthan, a rich, sharp-tongued Jewish widow of seventy-two, is deemed too old to drive, her son hires Hoke Coleburn, a thoughtful, unemployed African American man, to serve as her chauffeur. In a series of absorbing scenes spanning twenty-five years, what begins as a troubled and hostile pairing soon blossoms into a profound, life-altering friendship that transcends all the societal boundaries placed between them. This quietly powerful American classic has touched the hearts of millions.
“Driving Miss Daisy is a total delight." —NY Daily News.
