The Vineyard Theatre will present one-night-only reunion readings of its acclaimed productions of Craig Lucas' The Dying Gaul (June 24) and Paula Vogel's How I Learned to Drive (July 1). The show's full original casts, including Mary-Louise Parker and Linda Emond, will be on hand. Both readings will be staged by the productions' original director, Mark Brokaw.

The Dying Gaul, which premiered at The Vineyard in 1998, is the tragic American tale of a screenwriter who makes a small fortune but compromises his ideals in the process. The cast includes Linda Emond, Tim Hopper, Cotter Smith, and Robert Emmet Lunney.

1997's How I Learned to Drive explores the complex relationship between Li'l Bit and her Uncle Peck, as a series of driving lessons progresses from innocence to something much darker. The cast is to feature Mary-Louise Parker, David Morse, Johanna Day, Kerry O'Malley, and Michael Showalter.
