The River Arts District Playhouse (or The RAD) will present “Driving Miss Daisy” tonight through Sunday, April 18th. This show tells the story of an old Jewish lady and her African-American chaufffeur in a relationship that grows from resentment to affection over the years; it’s a relationship that transcends history, says Carle Atwater, who portrays Hoke Colburn, the chauffer.
