Presents
DRIVING MISS DAISY
By Alfred Uhry

“Isn’t it wonderful the way things are changing” remarks the wealthy, Jewish retiree, Daisy Werthan to her African-American chauffeur, Hoke Coleburn in response to the rapid changes taking place at the end of the 1950s.  Hoke’s response; “Things changin’, but they ain’t change all that much.”

Daisy Werthan’s life spans from 1888 to 1973. On stage we witness her last twenty-five years. It is no accident that Uhry chose to begin his play in 1948, a time when the status quo and comfortable middle class values were finally being challenged by a generation that would ultimately reject materialism in favor of peace, love and understanding. This was a time when anti-Semitism was openly exposed and the civil rights movement began to surface. The past was no longer a place to hide.  Accountability came knocking at the door.  

Under the direction of Phillip M. Church, What if Works is now bringing this landmark play to life at the Seminole Theatre in Homestead featuring a stellar cast of seasoned actors: Harriet Devine as Daisy Werthan, Nimmond Lockheart as her chauffeur, Hoke Coleburn and Chris Coppola as Daisy’s son, Boolie.
