The Lyric


Having broken records on Broadway and played to sold out audiences in London’s West End, David Esbjornson’s award winning, smash hit production has dazzled audiences and critics alike. Winning the 2012 whatsonstage.com award for Best Revival, this heart warming play is now on tour across the UK.

Inspiration for the much-loved Oscar winning smash hit movie, Driving Miss Daisy is the charming, poignant and utterly compelling tale of the unlikely, long-lasting friendship that blossoms between a prickly, elderly southern matriarch, Daisy Werthan (Gwen Taylor) and her kind-hearted chauffeur, Hoke Colburn (Don Warrington) who is employed by Daisy’s son, Boolie Werthan (Ian Porter).

As the wheels turn and the decades roll by against a backdrop of prejudice, inequality and civil unrest, the pair slowly transcend their differences and ultimately grow to rely on each other far more than either ever expected. Driving Miss Daisy is a heart warming comedy for all the ages.
