Event Description

Springfield Contemporary Theatre presents Alfred Uhry's Pulitzer-winning play "Driving Miss Daisy", directed by Jack Laufer, Nov.17 through Dec.3 at SCT Center Stage in Wilhoit Plaza. It's a timeless, searing, funny and ultimately hopeful meditation on race relations in America, told through the complex relationship between two of popular culture’s most enduring characters. When Daisy Werthan, a widowed, 72-year-old Jewish woman living in mid-20th century Atlanta, is deemed too old to drive, her son hires Hoke Colburn, an African American man, to serve as her chauffeur. What begins as a troubled and hostile pairing, soon blossoms into a profound, life-altering friendship that transcends all the societal boundaries placed between them. The production features Julie Bloodworth, Erik Kilpatrick and Pete Nielsen. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2:00pm Nov.17-Dec.3rd.
