How I Learned to Drive

By Paula Vogel

Directed by Cat Gleason

A wildly funny, surprising and devastating tale of survival as seen through the lens of a troubling relationship between a young girl and an older man. Using a palette of wild humor and startling honesty, Paula Vogel takes us on a journey down the bumpy roads of rural Maryland to deliver a tale of forgiveness and survival. A dynamically written play about a Lolita from Lolita's point of view, How I Learned to Drive explores a taboo subject in a startling new light. Winner of best play awards from The New York Drama Critics and the Outer Critics Circle, How I Learned to Drive also swept New York's Obies and Dramalogue awards and won the Pulitzer Prize for 1998.
