February 15-18, 2024
DRIVING MISS DAISY
by Alfred Uhry
Pulitzer Prize-winning, DRIVING MISS DAISY, is set in Atlanta and spans twenty-five years, from 1948 to 1973. When Daisy Wertham, a stubborn, elderly Southern widow, crashes her new car into the neighbor’s garage, her son, Boolie, forces her to take on a chauffeur. He employs Hoke Coleburn, much to her chagrin. At first, Daisy refuses to rely on a black man to get her from one place to the next but gradually Daisy’s prejudices are broken down and, against all odds, he becomes her best friend. Sean Smith makes his dictorial debut with THE ALLEY THEATRE COMPANY in this Alfred Uhry delicate drama.
