Having broken records on Broadway and played to sold out audiences in London’s West End, David Esbjornson’s award-winning, smash hit production of Driving Miss Daisy has dazzled audiences and critics alike.
This heart warming play is now on tour across the UK and coming to the Devonshire Park Theatre at the end of March.
Inspiration for the much-loved story is the charming, poignant and utterly compelling tale of the unlikely, long-lasting friendship that blossoms between a prickly, elderly southern matriarch, Daisy Werthan (Gwen Taylor) and her kind-hearted chauffeur, Hoke Coleburn (Don Warrington) who is employed by Daisy’s son Boolie Werthan (Ian Porter).
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.
Driving Miss Daisy, must-see show of 2013, is at The Devonshire from March 25-March 30.
