The play spans a quarter of a century, from 1948 to 1973, and takes place in Atlanta before, during, and after the civil rights movement. The plot centers on the personal and social conflicts of its two strong willed main characters.
Daisy Werthan, an elderly Jewish widow, is determined to maintain her independence. However, when she crashes her car, her son, Boolie, arranges for her to have a chauffeur, an African-American driver named Hoke Colburn.
Daisy and Hoke’s relationship gets off to a rocky start, but they gradually form a close friendship over the years, one that transcends racial prejudices and social conventions.
