Winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Play, and the basis for the hit 1989 film, Alfred Uhry's Driving Miss Daisy is a warmhearted, humorous and compelling look at the unexpected friendship between a fiercely independent Southern white woman and her African-American chauffeur. Set in 1948, the play centers on Daisy, a 72-year-old 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. Learn More

This production of "The Diary of Anne Frank" was outstanding. All of the characters did an excellent job. Rachel Redleaf, the young actress who played Anne, did an especially remarkable job capturing the essence of Anne. This important story needs to be shared with the new generation. I encourage parents to attend this show with their adolescent children.

This was one of the best plays that I've ever seen - except for Broadway musicals lol. My husband and two daughters (ages 12 & 14) atteneded with me. I cried and there was never a lagging moment in this show. Great cast. I highly recommend it.
The Diary of Anne Frank
A riveting and dramatic play about a Jewish family hiding from the Gestapo in war-torn Amsterdam. For two years the family and others lived in a cramped attic fearful of being discovered. This story is all the more compelling given its true account as told by 13-year-old Anne.
