Blog: Driving Miss Daisy Black History Month Q&A event, Feb. 10th 2013

Sierra Madre Playhouse will celebrate "Black History Month" with the first of several special events planned for the run of “Driving Miss Daisy”

On Sunday, February 10, 2013, the Sierra Madre Playhouse will celebrate "Black History Month" with the first of  several special events we have planned for the run of our well received and critically acclaimed production of “Driving Miss Daisy”.  Former Los Angeles City Council member Robert Farrell,  a 
Mississippi native and Freedom Rider during the Civil Rights Era,  will
 reflect on that important period in our history.

Following his appearance, recording artist, Maiya Sykes and friends will perform several of the
 anthems of the Civil Rights Era.

“Driving Miss Daisy” is the Pulitzer-winning play by *Alfred Uhry* about
 the developing friendship between an elderly Jewish woman in Atlanta and
 her African American chauffeur. Set in the years 1948 through 1973, the 
issues of civil rights and race are always part of the story’s background.

Further information is available about this wonderful production as well as a link tp purchasing your tickets on our website at www.sierramadreplayhouse.org
