Miss Daisy is driving into the Center for the Arts this weekend for a two-week stand.
"Driving Miss Daisy," brought to the silver screen in 1989 by Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman, runs at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays through Sunday, Feb. 24.
The story takes place in 1948 in the Deep South, and focuses on Daisy Werthan, a rich, sharp-tongued, 72-year-old Jewish widow who is driven arond town by a thoughtful, unemployed black man, Hoke, whom Miss Daisy immediately regards with disdain. In turn, Hoke is not impressed with her patronizing tone and, he believes, her latent prejudice.
Tickets are available by visiting the Center for the Arts, located at 110 W College St., or by calling 615-904-2787.
