Winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Play, and the basis for the hit 1989 film, Driving Miss Daisy
is a warm-hearted, humorous and affecting study of the unlikely relationship between an aging, crotchety white Southern lady, and a proud, soft-spoken black man. Set in 1948, the play centers on Mrs. ("Miss") Daisy Werthan, a 72-year-old Jewish widow who lives in Atlanta. After a driving mishap in which her automobile is demolished, Miss Daisy's son, Boolie, finds Hoke Colburn to be his mother's driver. Although initially reluctant, Daisy gradually starts to accept Hoke and an improbable friendship ensues. A sweet tale of friendship and devotion, the play also deals with issues of racism and prejudice that permeated the South at the time.
