How I Learned to Drive

Event, Theatre, Garden City Event, Performing Arts Series


Written by Paula Vogel
Direction by Markus Potter

Featuring the students of the Department of Theatre

This winner of the 1998 Pulitzer Prize, co-winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and co-winner of the 1998 Lucille Lortel Award for outstanding play is 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. How I Learned to Drive is the story of a woman who learns the rules of the road and life from behind the wheel.

“Ms. Vogel has written a lovely, harrowing guide to the crippling persistence of one woman’s memories.” —New York Times.

“…How I Learned to Drive is a tremendous achievement, genuine and genuinely disturbing…This is, quite simply, the sweetest and most forgiving play ever written about child abuse…Vogel’s delicate tactic makes sense not only as a way to redouble the dramatic effect, but as a representation of reality, a perfect case of the form fitting the subject.” —Village Voice.

“With subtle humor and teasing erotic encounters, Vogel addresses the dangerous intersections of teenage temptation. She also paints a richly poetic and picturesque landscape…The play is a potent and convincing comment on a taboo subject, and its impact sneaks up on its audience.” —Variety
