Saint John Theatre Company’s production of the award-winning play Driving Miss Daisy will finally arrive on the Imperial Theatre stage this month after Covid saw the show postponed back in 2020.   

Tackling themes of racisim, anti-semitism and prejudice, this production of the popular American comedy-drama features Walter Borden and Martha Irving.

“After so many Covid-related twists and turns, I’m so excited to finally be able to get Driving Miss Daisy on the stage,” said director Stephen Tobias. “I love this play and how it offers such an overview of the American Civil Rights Movement while telling such a touching personal story between the two main characters Daisy and Hoke.”

Driving Miss Daisy will run from March 23-26 at Imperial Theatre. Adult tickets are $42.50, senior and matinee tickets are $35.50 and students are $10. To secure your seat contact the Imperial Theatre box office at 506-674-4100 or visit www.imperialonline.ca.
