Driving Miss Daisy

When elderly widow Daisy Werthan crashes her car one day in 1948, 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 a 25-year backdrop of prejudice, inequality and civil unrest, a profound and life-altering friendship blossoms in this acclaimed comedy drama.

Driving Miss Daisy has touched the hearts of millions worldwide, from its landmark off-Broadway production in 1987 to the 1989 film version, which was the winner of four Academy Awards.

Dame Siân Phillips has enjoyed a dazzling career including a multi award-wining performance in I, Claudius, the epic film Dune, a Tony nominated performance of Marlene on Broadway and Cabaret in the West End. RSC actor and legendary children’s show presenter, Derek Griffiths’ West End credits include the original production of Beauty and the Beast, and the Child Catcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
