Flournoy Playwright Festival 2006
A wildly funny, surprising and devastating tale of survival as
seen through the lens of a troubling relationship between a young girl
and an older man. How I Learned To Drive is the story of a woman who
learns the rules of life from behind the wheel.
The story is recalled by a young woman growing up in Maryland called Li'l Bit, who comes of age in the 1960-70s. She receives driving lessons from her uncle, and that relationship - tentative and sexual - forms the underpinnings of a story that is mesmerizing, personal, and disarmingly funny.
