Gloucester Stage Company wraps up its 2013 season with Alfred Uhry’s Driving Miss Daisy from Sept. 5 through Sept. 22. The Pulitzer Prize-winning drama details the friendship between a sharp-edged Jewish widow and her black driver in a deeply personal and humorous journey set against the backdrop of the American Civil Rights Movement. Directed by Benny Sato Ambush, the Gloucester production features Lindsay Crouse as Daisy Werthan, Johnny Lee Davenport as Hoke Coleburn and Robert Pemberton as Boolie Werthan, Miss Daisy’s son. In 1989, the play was adapted to a Hollywood film featuring Morgan Freeman and Jessica Tandy.
