In this gripping drama and disarming comedy, Paula Vogel explores the journey a woman takes in reconciling a history of abuse at the hands of family members, and particularly her uncle. Considered by many to be one of the best American plays of the late 20th century, How I Learned to Drive premiered in 1997 and went on to win numerous awards, including Drama Desk, Obie, and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Twenty years later, the play still delivers as it story remains all too common. 

This play will feature guest Director Raphael Parry and guests artists Actor Brian Sprague, Visual Projection Designer and Sound Designer Mason York, and Lighting Designer Brooks Powers. 

Come see this New York quality production presented to the public by the OSU Department of Theatre.
