Driving Miss Daisy takes place in the 1940s through the 1970s at the height of the Civil Rights movement. The play delicately explores racial tensions when a warm friendship evolves between an elderly Jewish woman and her black chauffeur. It won the 1988 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
"Donna Mills with her sweet, intelligent and loving style brings so much life to Daisy Werthan. Arthur Richardson as Hoke complements her to the letter."
"It’s most like dinner theatre without the dinner. Get a famous name from film or TV and build a production around them. It’s not that it’s bad and it’s not that it’s good; it just is. Director Heather Provost served mostly as a traffic cop moving her actors through Genetra Tull’s bare bones scenic design."
