Driving Miss Daisy Matinee at the Historic Athens Theater in Deland

Walmart Viera Murphy’s Gas Station 11:30am Members $59 Guests $65 Quick bite at the Boston Coffee House on route. Link to Boston Coffee House (https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=boston+Coffee+house+deland&*)

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, 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 employer's 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.

A heart warming story that won a Pulitzer prize! Don't miss it.
