dc.description.abstractThe following discussion will examine the Southern and Jewish thematic elements found in Alfred Uhry’s plays Driving Miss Daisy and The Last Night of Ballyhoo in an attempt to classify the works into a literary genre. Though the plays seem quite different on the surface, several major themes are common to both, including social identity, memory, illusion, tradition versus the modern, and family. Therefore, a discussion of each of the themes is crucial in my attempt categorize Uhry’s works. In my conclusion, I will review the implications of these discussions and speculate on the reasons for the presence of these particular issues in the works of Alfred Uhry.
