‘Driving Miss Daisy’ at Carmel Community Players

CARMEL — In the Deep South just prior to the civil rights movement, 72-year-old Daisy Werthan is informed by her son 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. In a relationship spanning 25 years, the two become close and even dependent on each other. “Driving Miss Daisy” opens Friday and plays through Aug. 27 at the Carmel Community Playhouse, 14229 Clay Terrace Blvd. Visit carmelplayers.org for show times and ticket prices.
