Driving Miss Daisy to Open at Prattville’s Way Off Broadway Theatre

Prattville's Way Off Broadway Theatre’s production of the award-winning play Driving Miss Daisy by Alfred Uhry and directed by Sam Wallace will open on Thursday, February 8.

Driving Miss Daisy won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1988 and concerns a white Jewish woman, Daisy (played by Michon Givens), living in Atlanta who is forced to accept the fact that she can no longer drive herself where she needs to go. Her son Boolie (Eric Arvidson) engages the services of an African American man named Hoke (Tommy King) to be her driver and companion. Throughout the play we are back seat observers to the building of a life-long relationship between two unlikely people. Driving Miss Daisy is a play with the capacity to make us laugh, cry, and marvel at the wonders of friendship. This play is suitable for all ages.

Driving Miss Daisy is presented with special permission from Dramatists Play Service, Inc. It will run weekends February 8-25, 2018, 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 2:00 p.m. on Sundays.
