When Daisy Werthan, a wealthy, sharp-tongued Jewish widow, is deemed too old to drive, her son hires Hoke Colburn, an African American man, to work as her chauffeur. Set in Atlanta and spanning over a quarter of a century, Daisy and Hoke come to realize that they have more in common than they ever believed possible.

From its long-running Off-Broadway production in 1989 to the remarkable success of the Oscar-winning film version with Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman, Driving Miss Daisy is the story an enduring friendship that transcends the societal boundaries of a changing America.

The production is directed by Harry Patrick Christian of Montclair and
features Terri Sturtevant of Hillsborough as Daisy Werthan, Ron
Richardson of Maplewood as Hoke Colburn and Rob Nissen of New
Providence as Boolie Werthan.
