The London and Broadway production of Driving Miss Daisy, starring Gwen Taylor, Don Warrington and Ian Porter, plays at the Devonshire Theatre from Monday, March 25 to Saturday, March 30.
Having broken records on Broadway and played to sold out audiences in London’s West End, David Esbjornson’s award-winning, smash hit production has dazzled audiences and critics alike.
Winning the 2012 whatsonstage.com Award for Best Revival, this heart warming play is now on tour across the country.
Inspiration for the much-loved Oscar-winning smash hit movie, Driving Miss Daisy is the charming, poignant and utterly compelling tale of the unlikely, long-lasting friendship that blossoms between a prickly, elderly southern matriarch, Daisy Werthan and her kind-hearted chauffeur, Hoke Colburn who is employed by Daisy’s son Boolie Werthan.
As the wheels turn and the decades roll by against a backdrop of prejudice, inequality and civil unrest, the pair slowly transcend their differences and ultimately grow to rely on each other far more than either ever expected. Sparklingly funny, irresistibly heart-warming and with a wonderful much-loved cast.
Performances eve nings at 7.30pm with Wednesday and Saturday 2.30pm matinees.
