Academy Award, and Pulitzer Prize winning play, Driving Miss Daisy, will make an appearance at the McCallum Theater on March 25 and 26 at 8 p.m. to recognize the iconic play’s success.

Alfred Uhry’s play tells a story about a wealthy woman, Miss Daisy, and her new, less-fortunate chauffeur, Hoke. It expresses American societal change, racism, class differences, and anti-semitism, according to the McCallum Theater website.

“It is a luminous joy of a film,” says Jay Carr from The Boston Globe. “Heartbreakingly delicate, effortlessly able through indirection to invoke the civil rights era.”
