About How I Learned To Drive
Check your mirrors, place your hands at ten-and-two, and experience one of the greatest American plays ever written.
Actors’ Shakespeare Project continues our American Bards series with a title from one of the greatest living American playwrights: Paula Vogel.
Winner of the 1998 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and nominated for the 2022 Tony Award for Best Revival, How I Learned To Drive puts us behind the wheel of a ‘56 Chevy with our protagonist, Li’l Bit, as she looks back on her rocky journey from adolescence to adulthood. Fasten your seatbelts as she navigates dark family secrets, teenage growing pains, and her turbulent relationship with her Uncle Peck.
Named “One of the Top 25 American Plays Since Angels in America” by The New York Times, How I Learned To Drive traverses the full range of human emotions - from hilarity to heartbreak. Vogel’s examination of the highway towards womanhood has only taken on more urgency and meaning since it was first first staged.
