Driving Miss Daisy
By Alfred Uhry
April 6 to May 19, 2018
A Warm-hearted Comedy of an Unlikely Friendship
Daisy, a cantankerous old widow of wealth, is reluctant to accept help from anyone, especially the new chauffeur hired by her son. Her treatment of her new driver is aloof and dismissive. But Hoke is patient, and incident by incident, prejudices and stereotypes are revealed and shattered. Over the course of 25 years, the most unlikely of friendships changes both of their minds and their hearts.

WHY THIS SHOW
|I saw a production of Driving Miss Daisy years ago now, and have been waiting for the right time to offer this show on our stage. The experience was so intimately powerful, it made an indelible impression on me. Tom Pickett played Hoke in that production and we're pleased to say he will be joining us in Rosebud to reprise the role! The man exudes warmth, strength, humility and grace. Tom and this show are a gift.|
