How I Learned to Drive

Gunston Arts Center
2700 S. Lang Street Arlington

Winner of the Pulitzer prize for drama in 1997, How I Learned to Drive, written by Paula Vogel, follows the strained, sexual relationship between Li'l Bit and her aunt's husband, Uncle Peck, from her adolescence through her teenage years into college and beyond. Using the metaphor of driving and the issues of pedophilia, incest, and misogyny, the play explores the ideas of control and manipulation. The play was hailed by The New York Times, who said, "Ms. Vogel has written a lovely, harrowing guide to the crippling persistence of one woman's memories."

MD Theatre Guide - Highly Recommended

"...This is a daring play for a community theatre group to take on. The subject is hard to stomach, much less watch, and the performances seduce you and leave you feeling helpless and a little soiled. Dominion Stage meets these challenge head-on and brings it all the way home. This is a play worth seeing with a cast that seems born for these roles."
