WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Driving Miss Daisy, by Alfred Uhry, begins in 1948, and tells the story of the unlikely relationship between Daisy Werthan, a wealthy 72 year-old Jewish widow in Atlanta, and her chauffeur, Hoke Colburn, a proud, soft spoken African-American man. Spending twenty five years together, during a period of massive changes in America — in which they both face bigotry and discrimination — they ultimately become friends. Funny and powerfully affecting, Driving Miss Daisy won the 1988 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and inspired the 1989 movie, which won four Oscars, including Best Picture.
