Wise, VA

The time: 1948, the place: Atlanta, Georgia. Daisy Werthan, age 72, has crashed her car again, and her son, Boolie hires Hoke Coleburn, a black man of around 60 to drive "Miss Daisy". Over the next 25 years, as they change and the world changes around them, they form an unlikely bond. The Pulitzer Prize winning play, at turns funny and moving, brings to life the power of friendship, respect, and laughter to bridge any barrier.


Tickets are $15 at the door. All children and students are free to attend. In accordance with current UVA Wise masking guidelines, masks are optional for patrons in attendance.

This is a production of The Appalachian Center for the Arts, a dynamic space for theater, music, visual arts, and community enrichment in downtown Pikeville, KY.
