About Driving Miss Daisy

When Daisy Werthan causes a car wreck, her son hires hard-working chauffeur Hoke Colburn. What begins as a hostile clashing of wills between a stubborn Jewish matriarch and a proud black man evolves into a decades-long friendship as the two navigate Civil Rights-era Atlanta.

Driving Miss Daisy is a production of Ford Theatre's Lincoln Legacy Project,
a five-year effort to create a dialogue around the issues of tolerance, equality and acceptance.

The play is recommended for ages 10 and older.
