  • Driving Miss Daisy...into Calhoun

The time: 1948. The place: Atlanta, Georgia. Daisy Werthan, age 72, is in her living room, with her son Boolie, age 40. She has crashed her car, and Boolie insists that she have a driver. Boolie interviews Hoke Coleburn, an unemployed black man of around 60. Over the next 25 years, Hoke drives "Miss Daisy." They are initially wary of each other, and Hoke puts up with the somewhat crotchety Miss Daisy with dignity. She teaches Hoke to read, having been a teacher. Ultimately, they form a friendly bond, with Miss Daisy inviting Hoke to accompany her to a dinner for Martin Luther King, Jr.  

The Calhoun Little Theater is pleased to stage this poignant comedy written by Alfred Uhry and produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Services. This production is made possible by the sponsor of this production, Calhoun Pet Care, and our generous 2017-18 Season Sponsor Cathy Camp Bomar.
