PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Driving Miss Daisy is a 1987 play by Alfred Uhry about the relationship an elderly Southern Jewish lady shares with her African-American chauffeur, Hoke Colburn, over the span of several decades. The play became one of Atlanta's longest running and most successful shows at the Alliance Theatre, running for two years and over 800 performances. The Alliance production was directed by Robert Farley, now artistic director of the Georgia Ensemble Theatre. In 1989, the play was adapted for a Warner Bros. film with Morgan Freeman reprising his role on Broadway and Miss Daisy played by Jessica Tandy (who went on to be the oldest winner of the Academy Award for Best Actress for the role). The film won the 1989 Academy Award for Best Picture.
