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. Set in 1948, the play centers on Daisy, an elderly Jewish widow who lives in Atlanta. After a driving mishap in which her automobile is demolished, Miss Daisy's son hires Hoke Colburn to be his mother's driver. Initially resistant, Daisy gradually starts to accept Hoke, and an unlikely friendship begins to grow between the two. Ultimately a sweet tale of friendship and devotion, the play also touches on the racism and prejudice that permeated the South at the time. Jill Jane Clements (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and Rob Cleveland (Drumline) star. Learn More

August 15-16: Scotty K
Comedian Scotty K was born in New York and raised in Alabama. His mom is a Pennsylvania farmer’s daughter, and his father is a Norwegian immigrant turned Baptist preacher. Being the middle child of four kids, as well as being a preacher’s kid, gave him a very unique upbringing. Scotty lived in six states and attended eight different schools before graduating college. At an early age, he learned that the best way to make friends was to make people laugh. Though very likeable, it finally made sense as to why he had been put in “time out” over ten million times when he was diagnosed ADHD after college graduation. Scotty’s early career was spent counseling teens in drug rehabilitation and group homes which helped develop his light-hearted perspective on life.
Scotty has been winning crowds internationally for over a decade with his high energy and animated performances. With improv, characterizations, and music, his content is smart, creative, and fun for all audiences—even your momma! Scotty’s material ranges from growing up in the South, to family, to relationship dynamics, and cultural differences. His aim is to bring joy to his audiences (Nehemiah 8:10). At the end of his show, you feel good–not dirty.
Scotty K has been seen on BET’s Comic View, Comcast Comedy Spotlight, TBS, NBC, and yes, even The Weather Channel. He has been heard on nationally syndicated radio shows, such as The Bob and Tom Show, Rick and Bubba, and Bob and Sheri. Scotty has shared the stage with stars such as DL Hughley, Joe Rogan, Chris Tucker, Craig Robinson, Ricky Smiley, and Kevin Pollack.
