Driving Miss Daisy
A PLAY BY Alfred Uhry
Performing at The Writer’s Center
Postponed till August
Driving Miss Daisy won the 1988 Pulitzer Prize for drama. Set in Atlanta in 1948, it is the story of the evolving relationship between an elderly (and feisty) Jewish widow and the digniﬁed black man who becomes her driver. Over the momentous quarter-century from 1948 to 1973, we see how their rigid, professional relationship ripens into respect and tenderness.
