How I Learned to Drive
by Paula Vogel
Directed by Kayla Adams
The Artistic Home will continue its 2017-18 season with Paula Vogel’s Pulitzer Prize winning HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE, to be directed by The Artistic Home’s Associate Artistic Director Kayla Adams. HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE, which premiered in 1997, was a Pulitzer Prize winner and a pioneering drama for its examination of pedophilia and sexual abuse of women. It follows a young woman, named L’il Bit, from age 11 to age 18 and her friendship and sexual affair with her uncle.
THE NEW YORK TIMES said, "Ms. Vogel has written a lovely, harrowing guide to the crippling persistence of one woman's memories." The VILLAGE VOICE reported "…HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE is a tremendous achievement, genuine and genuinely disturbing…"
Starring: Elizabeth Birnkrant, Jenna Steege, Kelley Holcomb and Artistic Home ensemble members, Reid Coker and John Mossman.
