Driving miss daisy full script
Driving Miss Daisy by Alfred UhryThe place is the Deep South, the time 1948, just prior to the civil rights movement. Having recently demolished another car, Daisy Wertham, a rich, sharp-tongued Jewish widow of seventy-two, is informed by her son, Boolie, that henceforth she must rely on the services of a chauffeur. The person he hires for the job is a thoughtful, unemployed black man, Hoke, whom Miss Daisy immediately regards with disdain and who, in turn, is not impressed with his employers patronizing tone and, he believes, her latent prejudice. But, in a series of absorbing scenes spanning twenty-five years, the two, despite their mutual differences, grow ever closer to, and more dependent on, each other, until, eventually, they become almost a couple. Slowly and steadily the dignified, good-natured Hoke breaks down the stern defenses of the ornery old lady, as she teaches him to read and write and, in a gesture of good will and shared concern, invites him to join her at a banquet in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. As the play ends Hoke has a final visit with Miss Daisy, now ninety-seven and confined to a nursing home, and while it is evident that a vestige of her fierce independence and sense of position still remain, it is also movingly clear that they have both come to realize they have more in common than they ever believed possible-and that times and circumstances would ever allow them to publicly admit.

That morning Miss Daisy played by Jessica Tandy had been inching out of her Atlanta driveway when the car suddenly zoomed back across the flower beds, up and over a small retaining wall, so as to teeter, with its rear end exposed, over her neighbor's yard. Miss Daisy had put her foot on the gas instead of the brake, though Boolie Dan Aykroyd has the good sense not to accuse his mother of the obvious. She's not around the bend yet. Miss Daisy is in her 70's and has all her faculties. She has, however, reached a point where cars tend to misbehave when she is behind the wheel. Against his mother's furious objections, Boolie decides it is time she had a man to drive for her.
