Driving Miss Daisy: Alfred Uhry's Pulitzer Prize-Winning Drama
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 Set in 1948, the play centers on 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 hires Hoke Colburn to be his mother's driver. Initially resistant, Daisy gradually starts to accept Hoke, and an improbable friendship begins to grow. Ultimately a sweet tale of friendship and devotion, the play also touches on the racism and prejudice that permeated the South at the time. Johnny Lee Davenport (Master Harold...and the boys
) joins forces with Academy Award nominee Lindsay Crouse and Elliot Norton Award winner Robert Pemberton for Gloucester Stage Company's new production of this iconic and enduring drama.

We thoroughly enjoyed every minute. It was a professional show on all counts and worth the trip out to Gloucester. We look forward to next year's season!
