RENO — Sandra Brunell Neace directs “How I Learned To Drive,” a play by Paula Vogel, who won the Pulitzer Prize for this play. This wildly funny, surprising and devastating tale of survival is seen through the lens of a troubling relationship between a young girl and an older man. “How I Learned to Drive” is noteworthy for the many awards that it has won, including the 1998 Pulitzer Prize for drama. The play enjoyed an off-Broadway revival this year in New York. Neace adapted The Medea Project for the Brüka stage last season.
This play contains strong language, so it is suggested for mature audiences only (18 and older).
“How I Learned To Drive” opens June 8, followed by a post-show opening night champagne reception. “How I Learned To Drive” plays for 10 total performances: June 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 20, 21, 22 and 23 at 8 p.m. A June 10 matinee at 2 p.m. is followed by a talk back with the company. (June 20 is a Wednesday night show) The doors for all shows open a half an hour before curtain time.
