San Francisco's African-American Shakespeare Company opens its 2013-14 season with Alfred Uhry's DRIVING MISS DAISY. Winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize, DRIVING MISS DAISY is a timeless meditation on race relations in America told through the complex relationship between an elderly Southern Jewish woman and her black chauffeur. Having recently demolished another car, Daisy Werthan is informed by her son that she must rely on the services of a chauffeur, a proud, soft-spoken black man named Hoke whom she immediately regards with disdain and who, in turn, is equally unimpressed with her. In a series of absorbing scenes spanning 25 years, the two develop an unlikely bond despite their mutual differences, growing closer to, and more dependent upon, one another.

DRIVING MISS DAISY originally opened Off Broadway in 1987 at Playwrights Horizons starring Dana Ivey and Morgan Freeman; the play was made into a film starring Jessica Tandy, who won a Best Actress Oscar, and Morgan Freeman, and was recently revived on Broadway in 2010 starring Vanessa Redgrave and James Earl Jones, marking the Broadway debut of the show.

Scott Fryer directs this warm-hearted, humorous, and affecting study, a remounting of the 2011 Diablo Actors Ensemble production; original cast members L. Peter Callender, Ann Kendrick, and Tim Beagley reprise their roles for African-American Shakespeare's production.
