"I'd put this production at #1 in any Top Ten of plays for the 2008 Twin Cities theater season. Paula Vogel and Theatre Unbound dare to tell the truth." - Lydia Howell, TC Daily Planet

"Theatre Unbound goes full throttle in a powerful production of How I Learned To Drive" - Lisa Brock, Minneapolis Star Tribune

A tale of seduction, control, and learning the rules of the road. Surprisingly hilarious, deeply harrowing, this 1998 Pulitzer Prize winner explores one woman's survival amid the many forces that drive her apart from her own body.
