From its landmark Off-Broadway production in 1987 to the remarkable success of the Oscar-winning film version with Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman (four Academy Awards, including Best Picture), DRIVING MISS DAISY has become one of the most beloved American stories of the late twentieth century. The show is coming soon to Dublin as a stage show at Dublin’s Gaiety Theatre and to celebrate we have tickets to giveaway, keep reading for your chance to win.

The Irish premiere of Driving Miss Daisy at the Gaiety Theatre is a timelessly searing, funny, and heart-warming play about friendship, told through two of popular culture’s most enduring characters. When Daisy Werthan (Gwen Taylor), a rich, sharp-tongued, Jewish widow from the Deep South, crashes her car, her son Boolie (Simon Delaney) hires Hoke Colburn (Ernest Perry Jr.), an African American man, to drive her around. What begins as a troubled and hostile pairing, blossoms over 25 years into a profound, life-altering friendship that transcends all the societal boundaries placed between them.
Their iconic tale of pride, changing times and the transformative power of friendship has warmed the hearts of millions worldwide.

DRIVING MISS DAISY opens on 10th May 2016 and runs until 28th May (Low priced previews from 4th May) at the Gaiety Theatre. Tickets from €21 are on sale now
