‘Driving Miss Daisy’ rides into theater

Staff report

FLORENCE — Florence Little Theatre will present the stage adaptation of the classic film “Driving Miss Daisy” during January.

The time is 1948, the place is a small southern town in the United States. In this place and in this era an unlikely friendship begins to develop between a cantankerous elderly white woman and a proud, thoughtful black man who is employed as her driver. Over the years they find the common humanity in one another.

The two-hour play’s message is affirming rather than self-righteous and best for ages 13 and up, according to the theater.

Performance dates are Jan. 19 and 20, Jan. 23, 24, 25, 26 and 27, at 7:30 p.m. each day, and Jan. 21 at 3 p.m.
