How I Learned to Drive May 19 – June 18, 2023
by Paula Vogel, directed by Adriane Galea
Li’l Bit comes from a family where nicknames stem from genitalia, family “jokes” about body parts are common, and secrets are kept buried. From a young age, she learns that the uncle who loves you best and supports your dreams can also be the person who rips apart your childhood and abuses your trust. HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE is a heartbreaking play, rippling with humor and honesty.
This show has adult themes, including sexual abuse.
Winner of the 1998 Pulitzer Prize. Co-winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize. Co-winner of the 1998 Lucille Lortel Award for outstanding play. “Ms. Vogel has written a lovely, harrowing guide to the crippling persistence of one woman’s memories.” —NY Times
