DRIVING MISS DAISY Trundling Into Cavod Theatre This Fall

DRIVING MISS DAISY Trundling Into Cavod Theatre This Fall

This October we honor our Cavod Theatre founder, Stan Deen, with one of his favorite productions, Driving Miss Daisy.

This Pulitzer Prize winning play is a warm-hearted and humorous story of the unlikely friendship between Daisy, an aging and independent white Southern widow, and Hoke, a proud and soft-spoKen Black chauffeur. Daisy is determined to maintain her independence. However, when she crashes her car, her son, Boolie, arranges for her to have a chauffeur, Hoke Colburn. Daisy and Hoke's relationship gets off to a rough start, but they gradually form a close friendship over many years, and learn to see past racial prejudices and social conventions.

Directed by Sydney Leigh Allen, in honor of Stan Deen, the show features: Daisy - Donna Schilke; Hoke - Michael Truitt; and Boolie - Caleb Heckman.
