Story

What Is the Story of Driving Miss Daisy?
Driving Miss Daisy is the simple yet moving story of the 25-year relationship between Daisy Werthan, a well-to-do Jewish widow in postwar Atlanta, and her African-American chauffeur, Hoke Coleburn. At the beginning of the play, Miss Daisy is strenuously opposed to her son Boolie’s notion of hiring a driver, but a car accident has left her uninsurable, so she reluctantly agrees. As the play progresses from 1948 to 1973, we see how these two very different people become each other’s closest companion and confidantes.
