Steeped in the gentle lyricism we associate with nostalgic portraits of American youth, Paula Vogel's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, How I Learned to Drive, is also deals with often times unspoken and long-term influences of sexual abuse. This searing drama illuminates the the emotional changes in a teenager's psyche, the physical changes in a woman's body, and about the way the one fits into the other which ultimately result in the definition of one's adult self. The New York Times called DRIVE "a heartbreaking and wonderful new play . . . that startles at every turn. The play is angry and compassionate, light-handed and devastating."
