This short but inspiring 1988 Pulitzer winning play was converted into a 1989 Oscar winning Hollywood film starring Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman. I never saw the movie, but this play is excellent. The play, which contains only three roles, explores the slowly developing friendship between an elderly wealthy Jewish woman and a working class black man living in the southern United States around the time when Martin Luther King was preaching.

Short and sweet glimpse of the relationship between a chauffeur and an old lady and the impact it has over the years. Read it in a day and I wasn't rushing. For the briefness alone, I'd recommend it; if you don't like it, you'll have it finished before you can draw that conclusion.
