By Alfred Uhry
Directed by Howard Millman

April 20 - May 28, 2016

What happens when you pair a feisty Jewish widow who lives by the rules of social etiquette with a proud, hard-working African-American chauffeur? In 1948 Atlanta, it’s a hostile clashing of wills. But, as the 25-year relationship evolves, the two navigate the bumpy road of bigotry and Civil Rights together and a profound, life-altering bond emerges. This Pulitzer-Prize winner is a moving story of friendship told with humor, warmth, and beauty. Critics call this touching, totally irresistible comedy a delight!

Nate's Notes

"My mother was a single mom with 11 children who worked as a domestic on the other side of town. Miss Daisy’s chauffeur reminds me of her. Both had integrity, dedication, and a strong work ethic. Both earned the utmost respect of, and deep friendship with, their employer. What an inspirational story!" -Nate Jacobs
