An Academy Award-winning show has debuted at the Theatre Royal Bath this week.

Driving Miss Daisy follows the story of a Daisy Werthan, a widowed, Jewish woman who crashes her car.

When she is deemed too old to drive, her son Boolie hires Hoke Colburn to serve as her chauffeur.

The pair’s relationship has a rocky start but as time moves on, a profound and life-altering friendship blossoms.

The show has won four Academy awards following its off-Broadway production and 1989 film success.

BAFTA winner Siân Phillips will star as Daisy in this delightful remake.

Driving Miss Daisy will be at the Theatre Royal Bath, in Sawclose, at 8pm from now until Saturday.

There will also be a matinee today (Thursday) and on Saturday at 2.30pm.

Tickets, priced £19.50-35.50, are available from 01225 448844 or online at www.theatreroyal.org.uk
