Olean Community Theatre presents "Driving Miss Daisy"

Details

Olean Community Theatre presents "Driving Miss Daisy". The place is the Deep South, the time 1948, just prior to the civil rights movement. Having recently demolished another car, Daisy Werthan, a rich, sharp-tongued Jewish widow of seventy-two, is informed by her son that 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 employer's patronizing tone and prejudice. But, in a series of absorbing scenes spanning twenty-five years, the two grow closer, despite their mutual differences. Performances will be held at JCC Cutco Theater. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and youth under 18. Performance dates and times: Thursday, Oct. 10: 7:30pm Friday, Oct. 11: 7:30pm Saturday, Oct. 12: 7:30pm Sunday, Oct. 13: 2:00pm
