How I Learned to Drive – Giveaway

How I Learned PR 

The play powerfully and honestly deals with the taboo subject of paedophilia against the backdrop of rural Maryland. In 1962, Li’l Bit is 11 years old  and is given her first driving lesson by her Uncle Peck during which time he molests her. Li’l Bit is too young to understand what has happened but over the years there are more driving lessons and more advances.

Eventually, the relationship between Li’l Bit and Uncle Peck becomes more complicated as Li’l Bit begins to fall in love with him. She recognizes in him a kindred spirit – an individual outside the normal family unit and someone who fulfils her emotional needs. She keeps his love by being compliant to a point but understands there is something inherently wrong in this. The play traverses Li’l Bit’s life from childhood to adulthood and brings us her story from a first person narration as harrowing as it is uplifting.
