Spanning 1948-73, this 1988 Pulitzer Prize-winning play (turned Oscar-winning film) is one of Atlanta’s most cherished Southern stories. It’s a bumpy road when Hoke, a middle-aged black man, is first hired to chauffeur the aging and resistant Daisy Werthan, a white Jewish doyenne. But in time, their unlikely yet abiding friendship evokes our tears, laughter and faith in love’s resilient and revitalizing power. Robert J. Farley, who directed “Daisy’s” regional premiere in Atlanta 21 years ago, returns to direct Jill Jane Clements (Daisy Werthan), Rob Cleveland (Hoke Coleburn), and William S. Murphey (Boolie Werthan).
