How I Learned to Drive
Sometimes to tell a secret, you first have to teach a lesson, confides Lil Bit in the opening moments of "How I Learned to Drive." We first meet her as an adult, but she soon guides us through a series of vignettes from her childhood and adolescence that help us and Lil Bit herself understand how she became the woman she is. Using the framework of driving lessons she took from her aunts husband, Uncle Peck, we soon learn that Lil Bit is a victim of long-term sexual abuse. Uncle Peck is seductive and manipulative, but also an appealing figure for the young Lil Bit, who is unsure of her place in the world and in her insensitive family, which assigns humiliating nicknames to its members. His character is meant to confuse us. He appears gentle, loving, and a bit pathetic, but beneath the surface, he is a classic predator. In scenes punctuated by dark comedy, we see Lil Bit as she maneuvers through the uncomfortable landmarks of adolescence: a sock hop where she is afraid to dance because the boys will see her jiggle, gym class where shes taunted by her classmates, uncomfortable family gatherings, and the increasingly chilling driving lessons from Uncle Peck.

In a New York Times interview in 1997, Paula Vogel said that she wanted this play to get the audience to go along for a ride they wouldnt ordinarily take, or even know theyre taking. It moves as seductively as Uncle Peck, sliding from the comic into darker, more uncomfortable places, exposing patterns of guilt and responsibility with discomforting shifts of power.

Vogel won the Pulitzer Prize in 1997 for" How I learned to Drive." The play premiered Off-Broadway in a production by the Vineyard Theatre in 1997. The play was directed by Mark Brokaw, and featured Mary Louise Parker at Li'l Bit.
