About Driving Miss Daisy
Having recently demolished another car, Daisy Werthan, a rich, sharp-tongued Jewish widow of seventy-two, is informed by her son, Boolie, that henceforth she must rely on the services of a chauffeur. The person he hires for the job is a kind and thoughtful, unemployed black man, Hoke, whom Miss Daisy immediately regards with disdain and who, in turn, is not impressed with his employer's patronizing tone and her latent prejudice. But, in a series of scenes spanning twenty-five years, the two, despite their mutual differences, grow closer with and more dependent on each other. Slowly and steadily the dignified, good-natured Hoke breaks down the stern defenses of Miss Daisy. Over time, they both come to realize that they have more in common than they ever believed possible—and that times and circumstances would ever allow them to publicly admit. Written by Alfred Uhry, DRIVING MISS DAISY is the winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Play, and the Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Actress (Jessica Tandy).
DRIVING MISS DAISY is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
