Vogel Play At Production Workshop

hiltd The student-run Production Workshop at Brown University presents “How I Learned To Drive” a Pulitzer Prize-winning play by former Brown professor Paula Vogel, directed by Brown junior Alexandra Keegan ’12.

A play about trauma, memory, laughter, and defining boundaries.  Lil’ Bit is a young girl growing up in Maryland in the 1960’s. Trying to find her place in a world where she is sexualized by friends and family alike, she turns to the only person who is kind to her, her Uncle Peck. Peck, scarred by combat and alcoholism, becomes a father figure to Lil’ Bit and struggles to reconcile his feelings toward her as both a mentor and a lover. Paula Vogel sends Peck and Lil’ Bit on a dark coming-of-age exploration of love, control  and boundaries as Peck eagerly awaits Lil’ Bit’s 18th birthday and Lil’ Bit demonstrates. . . how she learned to drive.
