Lake County Theatre Company Presents “Driving Miss Daisy”

Driving Miss Daisy, by Alfred Uhry is a story rooted in the Deep South. It takes place over a 25 year span, from 1948-1973.
Daisy Werthan is a wealthy Jewish widow who is reluctant to give up her independence, starting with driving. Her son, Boolie, overrides her objections and hires a chauffeur for her:  Hoke Colburn, who is a black man. As years and events unfold, we witness a thawing in the relationship between Daisy and Hoke. Ultimately, they become enduring friends, despite their many differences.
This is a tale of aging and how families cope. It’s also one of prejudice in America from blacks to Jews. Ultimately, it’s a story of love and friendship amongst family and unlikely allies.

Daisy – Marlena Shapiro
