Driving Miss Daisy
by Alfred Uhry

     A beautiful and touching story of deeply rooted affection, DRIVING MISS DAISY is the perfect holiday offering. Written by Alfred Uhry, this Pulitzer Prize winning script focuses on the relationship of Daisy Werthan, a southern Jewish woman and her African American driver, Hoke Colburn. The beauty behind the story is its simplicity, spanning decades and showing the truly remarkable bond forged in the wake of fear and social intolerance, represented brilliantly through Daisy's son Boolie. Through acceptance and understanding on both sides, Daisy and Hoke's relationship shows us all the true nature of friendship, love, and comradery.
   
    A recurring ensemble member of ETC, Monica Woodlief makes her directorial debut with DRIVING MISS DAISY. "A woman who is both closed and open minded, both closed and open hearted is met by the steady force of a man of honor and humor," remarks Woodlief. "Sparks fly as the two shape each other into someone better than they were before. Set in an uncertain time in our nation's history, in a south that needed to be changed, DRIVING MISS DAISY, with humor and grace, showcases a story that speaks to the heart."
