Alfred Uhry’s classic Pulitzer Prize-winning play 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. Jewish widow Daisy Werthan and her African-American chauffeur Hoke Colburn slowly find trust and friendship with one another before and during the Civil Rights movement. The story takes the audience on a moving journey through the years and worlds of these two very different people who find ways to bridge their differences to become close companions. Walker, Texas Ranger stars Clarence Gilyard and Sheree J. Wilson star in this exceptional play about race and humanity.
Performances of Driving Miss Daisy are April 12-14, 2018 at 8:00 pm with matinees on April 14 and April 15 at 2 p.m. in the Bank of America Theatre. Tickets are $49-$59 and are available online at www.eisemanncenter.com or by calling the Eisemann Center Ticket Office at 972-744-4650. Group discounts for 10 or more are available at
