Driving Miss Daisy


  • Gallery Theater 210 Northeast Ford Street McMinnville, OR, 97128 United States (map)

By Alfred Uhry
Directed by Ted Desel

Set against a backdrop of changing world events between 1948 and 1973, join a fiesty southern widow and her proud but soft-spoken Black chauffeur as they journey from mutual suspicion and mistrust to respect and a friendship based on deep-rooted affection. After Daisy Werthan, a 72-year-old, Jewish widow, has just crashed her new car, her son hires Hoke Coleburn, an uneducated African-American, as her driver. Although Driving Miss Daisy has a cast of only three, Pulitzer prize-winning playwright Alfred Uhry creates a rich world of characters living in mid-century Atlanta.
