Driving Miss Daisy - Presented By The Village Playhouse
Driving Miss Daisy by Alfred Uhry
Starting in 1948, this drama covers the 25 year friendship of an elderly white woman and her black driver, as they navigate through the ups and downs of life in the South.
Daisy Wethan, an elderly Jewish widow living in Atlanta, is determined to maintain her independence. However, when she crashes her car, her 40-year-old son Boolie arranges for her to have a chauffeur, an African-American driver named Hoke Colburn. Their relationship gets off to a rocky start, but Hoke puts up with the somewhat crotchety Miss Daisy with dignity. She teaches Hoke to read when she learns that he cannot, which comes naturally to her, having been a teacher. Ultimately, they gradually form a close friendship over the years, one that transcends racial prejudices and social conventions.

ABOUT THE VILLAGE PLAYHOUSE:
The mission of the Village Playhouse is simple; to provide a place for creativity and learning, to our volunteers and the community we serve. Since our first production in 1978, we have been a place for those interested in theatre to come together and find new ways to express themselves. Our goal is to help our volunteers push the boundaries of what they thought was possible and to stimulate the community we serve with thought-provoking productions, both classic and new.
2018-2019 440TH SEASON:
The Village Playhouse is 40! To celebrate we are reaching out to all those involved with our first season (as the Village Playhouse of Wauwatosa) in 1978 - 1979.
