How I Learned to Drive


Event Details


At once compassionate, heartbreaking, and unexpectedly funny, this Pulitzer Prize-winning play chronicles one woman’s journey to break the cycle—and silence—surrounding her sexual abuse at the hands of a beloved family member. A story of boundaries, personal agency, and how hindsight is not always 20/20, How I Learned to Drive has earned its place in the contemporary American theatre canon and achieves a powerful new resonance in the era of #MeToo and #TimesUp.
