DRIVING MISS DAISY was the first in Alfred Uhry's Atlanta Trilogy, which deals with white Jewish residents of that city in the early 20th century. The play was inspired by his grandmother, Lena Fox, her chauffeur, Will Coleman and his father. His grandmother, a Jewish woman who lived in Atlanta during the 1960's, had to give up driving after a car accident and hired Coleman, who drove her for 25 years. He set his three plays at historic moments in the city's twentieth century-the 1915 lynching of Leo Frank, the 1939 Gone With the Wind premiere, the 1958 Temple bombing and the city's 1964 dinner honoring Martin Luther King's Nobel Peace Prize. The plays are Driving Miss Daisy (1988 Pulitzer Prize for Drama), The Last Night of Ballyhoo and Parade.
