About this show

On the dusty roads of Maryland, a young girl's sexual awakening takes a dangerous turn as she finds herself involved with a married man: her Uncle Peck... Set against a backdrop of rural America in the Sixties, the story of Li'l Bit is a harrowing and heartbreaking adventure that dramatises her struggle with a man addicted to self-destructive affections, and her journey towards understanding and forgiveness. Winner of the 1998 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, How I Learned to Drive shifts delicately through a range of emotional gears, exploring the fine line between love and abuse with a breathtaking humanity and humour. This play deals with sensitive subject matter and parental discretion is advised.
