Ghostlight Theater Company of New England proudly announces the cast of our 2015 production of Paula Vogel’s Pulitzer Prize winning “How I Learned to Drive”, directed by Ozan Haksever .
Winner of the 1998 Pulitzer prize for drama, “How I Learned to Drive” follows the strained, sexual relationship between Li’l Bit and her aunt’s husband, Uncle Peck, from her adolescence through her teenage years into college and beyond. Using the metaphor of driving and the issues of pedophilia, incest, and misogyny, the play explores the ideas of control and manipulation. Despite the serious subjects, there are many comedic and theatrical elements. The play sheds light on the complexity of these very real issues with sensitivity, humor, and poetry.
Li’l Bit: Christine Murphy
Uncle Peck: Jim Murphy
Male Greek Chorus: Jeffrey Richardson
Female Greek Chorus: Sarah Lord
Teenage Greek Chorus: Anja Ward
Congratulations to our cast and thank you to everyone who auditioned.
