Driving Miss Daisy at Ford's Theatre

Monday, September 1, 2014 - Sunday, October 26, 2014

Acclaimed Washington stage actors Nancy Robinette and Craig Wallace return to Ford's Theatre to perform in this beloved classic. When Daisy Werthan causes a car wreck, her son hires hard-working chauffeur Hoke Colburn to look after her. What begins as a hostile clashing of wills between a stubborn Jewish matriarch and a proud black man evolves into a decades-long friendship as the two navigate Civil Rights-era Atlanta. With humor and heartfelt emotion, Alfred Uhry's Pulitzer Prize-winning play poignantly explores the transformative power of true friendship.

"A heartwarming tale about the manner in which two people of goodwill cross the deep ravines of cultural borders and come to an understanding and respect for each other."
—The New York Times
