This warmhearted, humorous play that won Alfred Uhry the 1988 Pulitzer looks at the unexpected friendship between a fiercely independent Southern white woman and her African-American chauffeur. It's 1948, and after Daisy, an elderly Jewish widow who lives in Atlanta, has a driving mishap in which her automobile is demolished, her son hires Hoke Colburn to be her driver.

Ultimately a sweet tale of the transformative power of true friendship, the play also touches on the racism and prejudice that permeated the South at the time. Acclaimed Washington stage actors Nancy Robinette (called the Meryl Streep of Washington theater) and Craig Wallace return to Ford's to perform in this beloved classic. Learn More

Three generations of WSC Avant Bard Artistic Directors converge for this Harold Pinter favorite, an acting vehicle of stunning depth and resonance. No Man’s Land features a fallen poet and his drunken dispute with a mysterious stranger over success, adventures and romantic conquests. WSC Artistic Director Emeritus Christopher Henley teams up with his predecessor, Brian Hemmingsen, to star in this play of wit, deceit, and the battle between memory and imagination. The production will be staged by new Artistic Director Tom Prewitt, who helmed Six Characters in Search of an Author earlier this season.
