Theater guild presents ‘Driving Miss Daisy’

NASHUA – As part of its 51st season, the Nashua Theatre Guild will present Alfred Uhry’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Driving Miss Daisy.”

The play concerns Daisy Werthan, a widowed, 72-year-old Jewish woman living in mid-century Atlanta, deemed too old to drive.

Her son hires Hoke Colburn, an African-American man, to serve as her chauffeur. What begins as a troubled and hostile pairing soon blossoms into a profound, life-altering friendship that transcends all the societal boundaries placed between them.

The production features New England stage veterans Barbara Webb, Mike Wood and Chris Leon. It will be directed by William C. McGregor.

Performances will be through Sunday at 8 p.m. Jan. 27-28, and 2 p.m. Jan. 27-29 at the Janice B. Streeter Theater, 14 Court St. in Nashua.

Tickets are $12-$15 and are available by calling 320-2530 or visiting www.nashuatheatreguild.org.
