A play about a woman who looks back in forgiveness on a seven-year relationship with her uncle. Together they have traveled to the darkest, most intimate and unspoken of places. How I Learned To Drive is the story of a young woman whose coming-of-age in the 1960s and 70s is defined by driving lessons provided by her uncle, lessons which extend well-beyond learning the rules of the road. A beautifully crafted story unfolds her memories with breathtaking insight, wit and warmth.

“Jon Emm is exceptional as the uncle torn between what he knows is definitely taboo and his agonizing desire for carnal pleasure… Veronique Ory is brilliant as she fills the role of the young woman who approaches the uncle’s advances with wonderful childlike innocence… Scott Tiler uses this material insightfully, directing with stylish restraint, never letting the characters overplay their roles. This way, we, the audience, decide if we want to accept or reject the characters and if we believe that this story is about a beauty and a beast or about two people manipulating each other to fill their needs. ” – Reviewplays
