Department of Theatre students perform the wildly funny, surprising and devastating tale of survival written by Paula Vogel.

As part of their Pulitzer Prize-winning season, the Department of Theatre at Adelphi University’s Performing Arts Center (AUPAC) is pleased to present the 1998 Pulitzer Prize-winning play How I Learned to Drive, written by playwright Paula Vogel and directed by Adelphi Adjunct Professor Markus Potter.  This production features the students of the theatre department and will run from Tuesday, October 6 to Sunday, October 11 in the Black Box Theater located at AUPAC, 1 South Avenue, Garden City, NY.

The co-winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and co-winner of the 1998 Lucille Lortel Award for outstanding play, How I Learned to Drive is the devastating yet forgiving of survival seen through the troubling relationship between an older man and a young girl who learns the rules of the road and life from behind the wheel as a sufferer of childhood sexual abuse.

Director Markus Potter’s producing and directing credits include Stalking the Bogeyman (off-Broadway-New York Times Critics pick, Outer Critics Award Nomination), The Velocity of Autumn (Broadway), among others.
