Driving Miss Daisy tickets now up to 30% off! Production must end 17th December 2011
It is a challenge to find any description of Alfred Uhry's Pulitzer Prize-winning classic Driving Miss Daisy that doesn't use the phrase 'much loved'. The tale is best known from its 1989 Oscar-winning film adaptation, starring the much-loved Jessica Tandy and the very much-loved Morgan Freeman.
Driving Miss Daisy is the story of an enduring friendship between prickly Southerner, the elderly Miss Daisy, and her wise and kind-hearted (and ultimately much-loved) chauffeur Hoke. Set predominantly in the 1950s and 60s, against a backdrop of the US civil rights movement, the story is memorable and heart-warming; a Nan's favourite.
Morgan Freeman had played the benevolent Hoke in the original Off-Broadway production which made its debut in 1987. It became an iconic and a career-defining role for Freeman, who owned it completely with his warmth and humour, his "Yes'm" and his "making water".
Two decades later and it is Darth Vader's turn to make water. For 12 weeks only, Oscar-nominated James Earl Jones (the voice of Vader) will play Hoke alongside Oscar winner Vanessa Redgrave as Daisy Werthan. Both are much loved.
