BELFAST Cold Comfort Theater will present a staged reading of Alfred Uhry's award winning play, 'Driving Miss Daisy' at 7 p.m. at the First Baptist Church of Belfast, 95 High St. on March 18 & 19. There is no admittance fee, but a free-will offering is gratefully accepted.

This comedy/drama covers a 25-year span in the lives of Daisy Wertham, her son Boolie and their chauffeur, Hoke. Daisy's independent and crotchety ways run up against her son's plans to hire a driver for her after having her destroy more than one vehicle. Through the years the chauffer and aging lady learn tolerance, respect and affection for one another as they travel together thorough the racial and political '50s, '60s and '70s. Both terribly funny and touchingly sad, this play became an award-winning movie with Jessica Tandy, Morgan Freeman and Dan Aykroyd.

Aynne Ames, William Murphy and Adam Ratterree perform; Maggie Goscinski stages manages; Dorothy Wilson is in charge of props and Autumn Stupca runs sound, designed by Neal Harkness. The play lasts one hour. For more information, visit
