Arliss Howard and Debra Winger join the A.R.T. company to play the leading roles in How I Learned to Drive, Paula Vogel's Pulitzer Prize-winning play about a woman who learns the rules of the road and 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. The play premiered at the Vineyard Theatre in New York in 1997 and won every off-Broadway award for Best Play, including the Obie, Drama Desk, New York Drama Critics Circle, and Outer Critics Circle.
