How I Learned to Drive: October 24-November 14, 2015


How I Learned to Drive by Paula Vogel

WINNER of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama

presented by square product theatre in collaboration with Goddess Here Productions

Told from the perspective of a survivor of sexual abuse, How I Learned to Drive jumps back and forth in time, weaving a rich and complex tale that highlights the ways in which childhood trauma can affect adult experience. Equal parts harrowing and hilarious, the play explores cycles of abuse, the ways in which American culture defines femininity, sexuality, and adolescence, and the power of forgiveness. This complex, poignant, and surprisingly funny play offers no simple solutions: only flawed individuals striving to find meaning in their lives. Part coming of age, part social critique, part driving lesson, and part love story, How I Learned to Drive ultimately makes us question what it means to grow up in the vibrant and crumbling landscape that is America.
