This year, London plays host to two of the world’s greatest living actors as they star in Alfred Uhry’s timeless Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, Driving Miss Daisy.
For a strictly limited season at the Wyndham’s Theatre, London, Vanessa Redgrave and James Earl Jones star in this charming, poignant and utterly compelling tale of the unlikely, long-lasting friendship that blossoms between a prickly, elderly Southern matriarch and her kind-hearted driver.
This is, truly, one of those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. To witness, in London, these two award-winning actors in a production that has dazzled audiences and critics alike on Broadway.
For those of you who may not have seen, or have since forgotten the film, or not read the book, David Esbjornson’s acclaimed, smash-hit production follows the pair as the wheels turn and the decades roll by against a backdrop of prejudice, inequality and civil unrest. Miss Daisy and her driver, Hoke, slowly transcend their differences and ultimately grow to rely on each other far more than either of them ever expected.
Sparklingly funny, irresistibly heart-warming and with an unmissable stellar cast, Driving Miss Daisy is the must-see show of 2011 – what a great highlight to a London theatre break!
