Sandra Brunell Neace directs “How I Learned To Drive” written by Paula Vogel who won the Pulitzer Prize for this play. This wildly funny, surprising and devastating tale of survival is seen through the lens of a troubling relationship between a young girl and an older man. “How I Learned to Drive” is noteworthy for the many awards that it has won, including the 1998 Pulitzer Prize for drama. The play enjoyed an off-Broadway revival this year in New York. Neace adapted The Medea Project for the Brüka stage last season.
