Sonoma State University Department of Theatre Arts and Dance presents... “How I Learned to Drive” By Paula Vogel / Directed by Danielle Cain. Fasten your seatbelt, life takes some dangerous curves. "How I Learned to Drive" is a wildly funny, harrowing and beautiful play tracing a woman’s path through time as she recalls learning the rules of the road (and life) from behind the wheel of her uncle’s ’62 Buick Riviera. “How I Learned to Drive” delicately tells the story of Li’l Bit and her Uncle Peck while exploring issues of abuse, adolescent sexuality, family alienation and manipulation. Winner of the 1998 Pulitzer Prize for Drama originally starring Mary-Louise Parker, and later Molly Ringwald as Li’l Bit. Directed by Danielle Cain.
