Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and a long-running hit in New York and the West End. When Daisy Wertham, an aging crotchety Southern lady, smashes up yet another car, her businessman son informs her she must rely on the services of a chauffeur. He hires Hoke, a thoughful soft-spoken black man who in time, and against all odds, becomes her best friend. Through a series of short, revealing scenes spanning 25 years and filled with warm humour and insight, their relationship, despite their mutual differences and initial disdain for each other, grows closer and closer until their realisation that they have more in common than they ever believed possible. “A rare combination of On Golden Pond and The Odd Couple - one which in its rambling and gossipy way, is able to tug every heartstring in turn.” [Punch]
