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. Initially resistant, Miss Daisy gradually starts to accept Hoke over time, and an unlikely friendship begins to grow between the two. 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
