Compassionate, heartbreaking, and sometimes even funny, this Pulitzer Prize-winning play chronicles one woman’s journey to break the cycle—and silence—surrounding the years of sexual abuse she experienced 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 as a modern masterpiece and achieves a powerful new resonance in the era of #MeToo and #TimesUp.
This play deals frankly with issues surrounding sexual abuse and incest. We encourage all patrons to use their own discretion in determining the appropriateness of the material.
