Springfield Contemporary Theatre presents Alfred Uhry's Pulitzer-winning play "Driving Miss Daisy", through December 3 at SCT Center Stage in Wilhoit Plaza.   Local favorite Julie Bloodworth plays Daisy Werthan, a widowed, 72-year-old Jewish woman living in Atlanta in the late 1940s (a character based on Uhry’s grandmother).  Her son deems her too old to drive and hires 60-year-old Hoke Colburn, an African American man, to serve as her chauffeur.
