Local theater group presenting 'Driving Miss Daisy'

JAN. 25 – Many remember and love the Academy Award-winning 1989 film, “Driving Miss Daisy” – but what many don’t know is that the film began its life as a play by Alfred Uhry.

The play won the 1988 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and it’s coming to Adamsville this weekend.

ARTS Theater Group of Hardin County presents “Driving Miss Daisy” this weekend, Friday, Saturday and Monday at 7 p.m. and with a matinee performance on Sunday at 2:30 p.m. at The Marty, also known as The Adamsville Community Center, in Adamsville.

Produced and directed by Shane Clement, the set and cast are minimalist, with very little in the way of set pieces or props and a cast of only three. The one-act play has a run time of just under 90 minutes, and is very fluid, moving quickly from one scene to the next.

The place is the Deep South, the time 1948, just prior to the civil rights movement.
