This heart-warming, Pulitzer Prize-winning play deals with the relationship of a Southern Jewish woman, Miss Daisy, and her black chauffeur, Hoke, from 1948 to 1973. While Daisy initially views Hoke’s presence as an imposition, the two unlikely foes eventually find ways to care for each other in this touching story about the meaning of friendship and, ultimately, family.

Driving Miss Daisy debuted off-Broadway in 1987, won the 1988 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and was adapted into an Academy Award-winning film in 1989.
