Driving Miss Daisy

Tuesday, March 11 at 7:30pm

Drama Theatre, PAC 101 Braddock Road, Frostburg, MD, Frostburg

Walnust Street Theatre, Philadelphia, PA

Bernard Havard, Producing Artistic Director presents DRIVING MISS DAISY by Alfred Uhry.

A timeless classic of American theatre arrives in Frostburg when actors from Philadelphia’s legendary Walnut Street Theatre return to present a production of Alfred Uhry’s poignant Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Driving Miss Daisy. Powerful, funny and emotional, this heartwarming tale of pride, loyalty and the transformative power of friendship also won an Academy Award for Best Picture when it was
adapted into a movie.Beginning in Atlanta in 1948, the play follows Daisy Werthan, a determined and elderly Jewish widow
who has just experienced a small driving mishap. To Daisy’s dismay, her son, Boolie, immediately hires an African-American driver, Hoke Colburn, to serve as her chauffeur. As the years progress, the shifting nature of Hoke and Daisy’s relationship is revealed and we discover that they are more alike than we might have initially imagined. The play deftly explores themes of friendship, prejudice, racism and the fluctuating atmosphere in the second half of the 20th century.
