The full cast and creative team have been announced for a new revival of Alfred Uhry’s hit play, Driving Miss Daisy, at The Barn Theatre in Cirencester.

It will feature two-time Olivier Award nominee Susan Tracy as Daisy Werthan and Mensah Bediako as Hoke Coleburn, plus John Sackville as Daisy’s son, Boolie Werthan.

Spanning 25 years from 1948 to 1973, Driving Miss Daisy charts the friendship between elderly Southern Jewish widow Daisy and her African American chauffeur Hoke. This year marks the 35th anniversary of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play which was made into a film in 1989.

Simon Reade, former artistic director of Bristol Old Vic, will direct the new production which runs at The Barn Theatre in Gloucestershire from 19 August to 17 September 2022.

The revival will feature design by Gregor Donnelly, lighting design by Sam Rowcliffe-Tanner and sound design by Harry Smith.
