Event Description
Driving Miss Daisy, Alfred Uhry's classic play, is a funny, timeless, searing, and ultimately hopeful meditation on growing old, relationships, and loyalty. This iconic tale of pride, changing times and the transformative power of friendship has warmed the hearts of millions. Driving Miss Daisy won the Pulitzer Prize and the film version of this beautiful story, starring Morgan Freeman and Jessica Tandy, won multiple Academy Awards including the Oscar for Best Picture.

Set against the backdrop of the Civil Rights Era Driving Miss Daisy tells the story of Miss Daisy and her newly hired Chauffeur Hoke. Although Miss Daisy lives a life of privilege while Hoke lives the life of an African-American man in the days of Jim Crow, they discover they have much in common. Their relationship, spanning a 25 year period, is a reflection of critical changes in American society. Daisy and Hoke deal with anti-semitism, racism, and class differences while their bond grows ever stronger. Full of wit and charm, Miss Daisy and Hoke take audiences on an unforgettable journey. Driving Miss Daisy is moving in more ways than one.
