Video Promo: DRIVING MISS DAISY by by Alfred Uhry and Robert Waldman, Fredericksburg Theater Company, April 13 - 30, 2017
Winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize, Driving Miss Daisy is a timeless, searing, funny, and ultimately hopeful meditation on race relations in America, told through the complex relationship between two of popular culture's most enduring characters. Daisy, a widowed, 72-year-old woman living in midcentury Atlanta, is deemed too old to drive. Her son hires Hoke Colburn, an African American man, to serve as her chauffeur. What begins as a troubled and hostile pairing, soon blossoms into a profound, life-altering friendship that transcends all the societal boundaries placed between them.
Cast in the production are Charlotte Freeborn as Daisy Werthan, Stan Hicks as Boolie Werthan, and Robert King Jr. as Hoke Colburn. FTC Artistic Director Kerry Goff is directing the production.
