About this show

Winner of the 1998 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, How I Learned to Drive has become a postmodern classic. The play is the funny, yet heartbreaking tale of one woman's ability to survive her turbulent adolescence in the late 1960s. How I Learned to Drive tackles Lil Bit's troubling relationship with her Uncle Peck told through the rearview mirror of adulthood. Through a series of flashbacks and vignettes, Lil Bit examines her formative years, revealing the life lessons learned while learning to drive in her Uncle Peck's Buick Riviera. Paula Vogel's haunting play explores the power of memory, forgiveness, and the feeling of freedom gained behind the wheel.
