Driving Miss Daisy at Theatre Royal, Sydney, Australia...

This evening was opening night for Driving Miss Daisy at the Theatre Royal in King Street, Sydney.

A timeless American play, which inspired the beloved Academy Award®- winning film, Driving Miss Daisy tells the affecting story of the decades-long relationship between an elderly Southern Jewish woman, Daisy Werthan, and her compassionate African-American chauffeur, Hoke Colburn. Their iconic tale of pride, changing times and the transformative power of friendship has warmed the hearts of millions worldwide.

David Esbjornson's acclaimed, smash-hit production has dazzled audiences and critics alike on Broadway and the West End.
