By Afred Uhry, directed by Michael Andron
Winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Play. Academy Award for Best Picture. A warm-hearted, humorous and affecting study of the unlikely relationship between an aging, crotchety white Southern lady, and a proud, soft-spoken black man. A long-run Off-Broadway success and an Academy Award-winning film.
The first in Alfred Uhry's Atlanta Trilogy, which deals with white Jewish residents of that city in the early 20th century. Inspired by his grandmother, a Jewish woman who lived in Atlanta during the 1960’s, who had to give up driving after a car accident & hired a chauffeur, who drove her for 25 years. The three plays are set at historic moments in the city’s history—the 1915 lynching of Leo Frank, the 1939 Gone With the Wind premiere, the 1958 Temple bombing & the city’s 1964 dinner honoring Martin Luther King’s Nobel Peace Prize.
