**WINNER OF THE 1988 PULITZER PRIZE FOR DRAMA**

Daisy Werthan is a sophisticated, stubborn Southern woman who is becoming more and more reckless behind the wheel of her car. When her son hires Daisy an African-American chauffeur, no one anticipates the comradery that will bloom between these two unlikely friends. As the years pass, they begin to rely on each other more and more and it becomes clear that although they are from two different worlds, this wealthy Southern matriarch and her driver have more in common than they could ever imagine (or that the time and circumstances in which they live would ever allow them to admit). The basis for the popular film starring Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman, this play is a favorite amongst theatre-goers and we cannot wait to bring it to the Theatre Downtown stage, just in time for Mother’s Day!

"The play is sweet without being mawkish, ameliorative, without being sanctimonious." —NY Times.

"…a perfectly poised and shaped miniature on the odd-couple theme." —NY Post.

"DRIVING MISS DAISY is a total delight." —NY Daily News.
