New York State's StageWorks, billed as Columbia County's professional Equity theatre, will put the brakes to their 1999 Mainstage season as Paula Vogel's How I Learned to Drive ends its run there Sept. 5. Performances began Aug. 18.
How I Learned to Drive, which won the 1998 Pulitzer Prize, tells of a young girl who develops an inappropriate relationship with her uncle.
During its run at the Century Theatre in 1997, How I Learned to Drive won the 1997 Obie Award, Drama Desk Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, New York Drama Critics Circle Award, Lucille Lortel Awards and Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
Other Vogel plays include The Mineola Twins, The Baltimore Waltz and Desdemona.
