In Atlanta 1948, the 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.

Starring the multi award-winning Dame Siân Phillips (I, Claudius and Dune) and RSC actor and legendary children’s show presenter, Derek Griffiths (Coronation Street, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), this is a moving, funny, and ultimately hopeful story.

From its landmark Off-Broadway production in 1987 to the remarkable success of the 1989 film version, which was the winner of four Academy Awards including Best Picture, Driving Miss Daisy has touched the hearts of millions worldwide.

Tender and intimate.
★★★★ Stage

Alfred Uhry’s tender drama is enhanced by two subtly defined performances.
★★★★ StageTalk Magazine

Sian Phillips and Derek Griffiths give virtuosic performances. Teddy Kemener…excellent. ★★★★ Sunday Express

A sublime production…profoundly enhanced by Ms Philips’s luminous presence.   ★★★ Daily Express

That such a familiar tale came across as so fresh and vibrant is a testament to the high quality of this production. A deeply moving show.
★★★★ LondonTheatre1

The two talented actors joust generously with each other, as effective in their unspoken moments as in their verbal combat.
★ Bristol Post

Above all it is a deceptively simple and heartwarming story about an unlikely friendship.
Wiltshire Times

Sian Phillips is a wickedly witty Miss Daisy, aging with subtle assurance before our eyes – another unforgettable performance by this astonishing actress.  See it if you can.
Fine Times Recorder

Gently poignant, exquisitely well-observed and subtly affecting
Bath Magazine

This is a little play that tackles big issues with no small measure of wit and warmth, and really is essential viewing in these troubled times.
