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
