Daisy Werthan's driving days are done. She's wrecked another car, and her son Boolie orders her to use the chauffeur he's hired. But that doesn't mean she has to like it. She resents her driver, Hoke, and treats him poorly, and not just because he's a black man. In the Georgia of 1948, however, it's not like an older Jewish woman and her black driver are going to be friends. Still, despite their cultural differences, Daisy and Hoke have a lot in common, as they discover throughout the course of their long relationship. New Jewish Theatre continues its season with Alfred Uhry's Pulitzer Prize winning drama Driving Miss Daisy. Performances take place at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (December 1 to 18) in the Wool Studio Theatre at the Jewish Community Center (2 Millstone Campus Drive, Creve Coeur; www.newjewishtheatre.org). Tickets are $39.50 to $43.50.
