Driving Miss Daisy was written by Alfred Uhry in 1987 and debuted Off-Broadway at the Playwrights Horizons Theater. The play won the Pulitzer Prize for drama and the Outer Circle Critics award in 1988. In 1989 the play was made into a film with Morgan Freeman and Jessica Tandy. Uhry received an Oscar® for 'Best Adapted Screenplay' while the film was awarded 'Best Picture'. The play was revived On Broadway in 2010 and just completed a successful run.
When Daisy Werthan, a widowed, 72 year-old Jewish woman living in midcentury Atlanta, is deemed too old to drive, her son Boolie hires Hoke Coleburn, an African American man, to serve as her chauffeur. 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.
The play is directed by Jon Huffman and stars Della Brown, Clyde Tyrone Harper and Tony Prince.
