Driving Miss Daisy

Driving Miss Daisy

By Alfred Uhry

When Daisy Werthan’s son hires Hoke to drive her around town, the indomitable Daisy has no idea that her stubborn chauffeur will soon become a permanent fixture in her life. Over the span of twenty-five years, these two develop an unlikely bond that challenges the idea of friendship during America’s Civil Rights era. Featuring two of Barter Theatre’s all-time favorite actors – Mary Lucy Bivins and Jasper McGruder.

Barter Theatre does not offer advisories about subject matter, as sensitivities vary from person to person. If you have any questions about content, age-appropriateness or stage effects (such as strobe lights or theatrical fog) that might have a bearing on patron comfort, please contact the box office.
