DRIVING MISS DAISY is a recording of a stage production of the Alfred Uhry play about the friendship between and old white woman and her black chauffeur in the American Deep South.

Discrimination

There are some discriminatory terms in the play's dialogue, such as references to 'coloured men' and 'Jews', as well as a use of 'nigger' by the main black chauffeur character, who clearly disapproves of the term. There is also the brief description of a past incident involving the racially motivated hanging of a black man.

There is some mild smoking and very mild bad language (eg 'God', 'damn').
