How I Learned to Drive (1997) follows the flawed but powerful relationship between Li'l Bit and her Uncle Peck. Told through a collection of memories, this play explores sexuality, trauma, love, and moral ambiguity. The play is structured through various driving lessons Uncle Peck gives to Li'l Bit. As the intricacies of their connection are revealed, the play asks the audience to examine the sometimes uncomfortable complexities of human relationships as experienced in the shadows of family intimacy and in the myriad ways we define love. This production is in partial fulfillment for Honors in Theater.

Reservations will be available two weeks in advance of the performance online or by phone at 860-685-3355.
