"Driving Miss Daisy," a prize-winning American play about an elderly white woman and her black chauffeur, has opened in Johannesburg to rave reviews from critics delighted by its low-key handling of racial friction. With the exception of one critic who found the script too bland, black and white reviewers from pro-government and opposition newspapers praised the play and the production, which opened last week at the Market Theater.
