Description:

Theatre Box of Floral Park is back and running at full speed this summer as we proudly present Alfred Uhry’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Driving Miss Daisy” from Friday, July 29 to Sunday, July 31 and from Thursday, Aug. 4 to Saturday, Aug. 6 at United Methodist Church, 35 Verbena Ave.

This beloved tale that was also made into an Oscar-winning motion picture examines what happens when Daisy Werthan, a Jewish widow living in Atlanta who is no longer able to drive, is forced by her concerned son, Boolie, to hire a Black woman named Hoke to chauffeur her. As the play unfolds over 25 years, the initial differences between both women evolves into a solid friendship through which they deal with issues ranging from illiteracy, a temple bombing and the Civil Rights movement. Prepare to laugh, be moved and even shed a few tears.

For vaccinated audience members, masks are optional; for those who are not vaccinated, masks are highly recommended.

Enjoy the show in air-conditioned comfort. Show times are 8 p.m. July 29 and 30 and Aug. 4-6 and 2 p.m. on July 31. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for ages 65 and older and $10 for ages 18 and younger.
