How I Learned to Drive
February 15 & 16, 21-24
By Paula Vogel
Directed by Wes Meador
How I Learned To Drive tells the story of Li’l Bit, a young woman growing up in rural Maryland with a large extended family, including Uncle Peck. In a series of flashbacks and flash-forwards, the play chronicles an uncle-and-niece relationship as it progresses, during the course of a number of driving lessons, from friendship to unhealthy closeness. Smart, funny and moving, the Pulitzer Prize winning play deals with charged issues of sexuality and sexual abuse with remarkable grace, exploring themes of control and manipulation told through the metaphor of driving. The thrill of the open road was never paved with such complexity.
April 4 & 5, 10-13
Based on the play by Aristophanes
Adapted and directed by Kyle Hatley ‘03
The time is now.
The Conflict, however, is as old as the dust
And the ashes of the first Human Being
Ever to walk the Earth.
As old as war and the idea of Peace.
But the Resolve is ridiculously clear and equally as old:
In the face of War
Lysistrata and her followers
Take matters into their own hands…
“I’d rather celebrate the Human Potential
With Peace and Sex, with Song and Dance,
Than destroy it with weapons and assimilation.”
