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. It’s 1948, and after Daisy, an elderly Jewish widow who lives in Atlanta, has an auto accident, her son hires Hoke Colburn, a black man, to be her driver. Initially resistant, Miss Daisy gradually starts to accept Hoke, and an unlikely friendship begins to grow between the two. Ultimately a sweet tale of the transformative power of true friendship, the play also touches on the racism and prejudice that permeated the South at the time. Revisit one of America’s most treasured stories of compassion, acceptance and mutual respect in this production by OnStage Atlanta.
