Dame Siân Phillips (I, Claudius
, Dune, Marlene
) and Derek Griffiths (Beauty and the Beast
, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
, Coronation Street
) star in this heart-touching production made famous by the 1989 Academy Award®-winning film.
Set in Atlanta, Georgia, the story begins one day in 1948 when a prickly, 72-year-old Jewish widow, Daisy Werthan, crashes her car. Deemed too old to drive, her son hires her a chauffeur, an African-American named Hoke Colburn. Daisy and Hoke’s relationship gets off to a rocky start, but as times change across the course of a 25 year backdrop of prejudice, inequality and civil unrest, a profound and life-altering friendship blossoms.
