Runs Feb. 28 through March 17.
Set against a beautiful, historical backdrop of Atlanta’s development through the mid-20th century, the story of aging Southern matron Daisy Werthan, her long-suffering son Boolie, and her chauffeur Hoke Colburn unfolds over 25 years of friendship, loss, racial tension, and ultimately love. This much-beloved story of an unlikely friendship is the play most associated with Georgia Ensemble Theatre’s late Artistic Director and Co-founder Bob Farley, and this production, directed by his daughter Laurel Crowe, is a tribute to him.
The cast of Driving Miss Daisy features Jill Jane Clements as Daisy Werthan, William S. Murphey (My Fair Lady and Moonlight and Magnolias at GET) as Boolie Werthan, and Rob Cleveland (A Doll’s House Part 2 at Actor’s Express & Aurora and Homers at GET) as Hoke Colburn.
Ticket prices start at $29. (Senior/Student discounts available for select performances). Groups of ten or more are welcome with great discounts available, call 770-641-1260.
