How I Learned to Drive

How I Learned to Drive

Directed by J’Lyn Hope

Parkland Theatre's 29th annual student production is the 1998 Pulitzer Prize winner, “How I Learned to Drive”. This show explores the surprising, sometimes comedic, and devastating tale of survival seen through the eyes of a troubling relationship between a young girl and her uncle. Lil’ Bit’s story shows the strength it takes to steer through the chaos, no matter how challenging it may be, and how to drive through life in spite of the pain and damage encountered along the way.
