This play by Alfred Uhry won the 1988 Pulitzer Prize for drama. It is the story of a friendship that develops over a 25 year period between Daisy Werthan, and elderly Jewish widow living in Atlanta, and Hoke Coleburn, the African American chauffeur her son hires for her after she crashes her car. Daisy and Hoke's relationship gets off to a rocky start, but they gradually form a close friendship over the years, one that transcends racial prejudices and social conventions. This drama was hailed for its quiet, unsentimental examination of its elderly characters and for its balanced depiction of gradually changing political sensibilities in the South.
