Theatre: "Driving Miss Daisy"

« Back to main calendar
Oct 13, 2019 | 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Olean Community Theatre presents a comedy/drama written by Alfred Uhry.

The place is the Deep South, the time 1948, just prior to the civil rights movement.

Having recently demolished another car, Daisy Werthan, a rich, sharp-tongued Jewish widow of 72, is informed by her son that she must rely on the services of a chauffeur. The person he hires for the job is a thoughtful, unemployed black man, Hoke, whom Miss Daisy immediately regards with disdain and who, in turn, is not impressed with his employer’s patronizing tone and prejudice.

But, in a series of absorbing scenes spanning twenty-five years, the two, despite their mutual differences, grow closer and dependent on each other.
