How I Learned To Drive

How I Learned to Drive: Balmy evenings in rural Maryland are fraught with danger, and seductions can happen anywhere from a river bank to the front seat of a car, where a young self-conscious girl is learning to drive. To Lil Bit, the radio is the most important part of the car, but the pop music of the 50s can never quite drown out the harrowing images in her mind.

The Mammary Plays are mirror-image investigations of coming of age in the ’60s: How I Learned To Drive, a deceptively delicate tale of sexual awakening in desperate if not criminal circumstances, and The Mineola Twins, an outrageous political satire. Both plays are receiving multiple productions throughout the U.S., and How I Learned To Drive, one of the most acclaimed plays of 1997, has won 13 major awards, including the Pulitzer Prize, Obies, Lucille Lortel, Drama Desk, NY Drama Critics Circle and Outer Critics Circle awards and the coveted Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.
