The story of a friendship that develops over a 25-year period between Daisy Werthan, an elderly Jewish widow living in Atlanta, and Hoke Coleburn, the African American chauffeur her son hires for her. Set during the years of the civil rights movement, the drama was hailed for its quiet, unsentimental examination of its elderly characters and for its balanced depiction of gradually changing political sensibilities in the South.
Winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize for drama.
