ATHENS, W.Va. The Office of Multicultural Affairs at Concord University is pleased to announce that 4PALS Productions will present Alfred Uhrv's dramatic comedy, "Driving Miss Daisy" on Wednesday, April 17, 2013 in the Main Theatre of the Alexander Fine Arts Center at 7 p.m.
 
"Driving Miss Daisy" is the story of Daisy Werthan, an elderly Jewish woman, her chauffeur Hoke Coleburn, and their unexpected but rich friendship.
 
At 72, Daisy struggles to keep her independence when her son Boolie hires a chauffeur and insists that she give up driving.  Hoke's warmth and understanding eventually wins Daisy over, and in the 25 years that follow, a deep affection develops between these unlikely friends.
 
Directed by Sara Helmandollar, the production features a local all-star cast with Mary Jo Babbitt as Daisy, Vain Colby as Hoke and Skip Crane as Boolie.  "Driving Miss Daisy" is a tender story about racial tensions, growing old and friendship that pleases audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
 
"Earlier this semester, 4PALS Productions presented ‘The Passing of Pearl,' " Nancy Ellison, director of Multicultural Affairs, said. "We enjoyed that so much that we asked them to come back and present ‘Driving Miss Daisy,' too."
 
This event is free and open to the public.
