Driving mis Daisy
After reading the script to “Driving Miss Daisy” it made me believe that the play is going to be very good.   While reading the script I felt it gave a great look into the different lives people had during that time period.   I felt great emotion for “Hoke”.   I felt the character Hoke is going to be very influential to see on film, due to his southern accent and the way he pronounced his words.   This play I feel causes great discussion because each character is very different.   I am interested in observing the body languages that Hoke and Daisy display to each other at the beginning of the play.   The tension and somewhat negative feelings Daisy had when Hoke was first hired is going to be a great performance on their part.   The script was very well written and I felt it was very easy to read and imagine what was happening at the same time.
