DRIVING MISS DAISY

by Alfred Uhry

“Isn’t it wonderful the way things are changing” remarks the retired German-Jewish teacher Daisy Werthan to her African-American chauffeur, Hoke Coleman in response to the whirlwind transformations taking place between the 50s and 60s. Hoke’s response is short and to the point; “Things changin’, but they ain’t change all that much.”

Looking at the deeply divided world in which we live today Hoke’s words are chillingly resonant. Written in 1985, Daisy’s life spans from 1876 to 1973. On stage we see only her last twenty-five years. It is no accident that Uhry chose to begin the action in 1948, a time when the status quo and comfortable middleclass values became challenged by a generation that would soon reject materialism in search of peace, love and understanding. This was a time when prejudice and racial inequality were being brought to the surface and examined in the cold light of day. The past was no longer a place to hide and accountability came knocking on the door with intrepid insistence. 

What if Works is proud to present this landmark play at the historic Seminole Theatre in Homestead featuring a stellar cast of local resident actors with Harriet Devine as Daisy Werthan, Nimmond Lockheart as her chauffeur, Hoke Coleman and Chris Coppolo as Daisy’s son, Boolie
