Driving Miss Daisy
Set in Atlanta in the 1940's-1970's, Alfred Uhry's play about the seemingly contentious but genuine friendship between wealthy Jewish widow Miss Daisy and her African-American driver Hoke catapulted into the national consciousness with the 1989 film adaptation, starring Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman. The relationships among the characters are the heart of the play, and reflect the changes occurring in the culture of America through the decades the story spans. Issues surrounding religious, racial, and cultural prejudice surface as the relationship between Daisy and Hoke develops through the same decades as the Civil Rights Movement takes hold.
Directed by Marci Woodruff, the cast features local professional actors Cary Anne Spear, Kevin Brown, and Todd Beckter.
