What Is the Story of How I Learned to Drive?
Li’l Bit, so nicknamed at birth by her relations, serves as the narrator of her own life story in How I Learned to Drive. Growing up in in the 1960s in rural Maryland, Li’l Bit doesn’t have much in common with her family, among them a mother who got pregnant young, a grandmother who was a child bride and a sexist grandfather. Her only connection is with her Uncle Peck, a troubled veteran who married Li’l Bit’s aunt and seems to be the only adult in her life willing to listen. The two begin spending a lot of time alone together when he starts teaching her to drive. From childhood through her awkward adolescence and into her college days, Bit's relationship with Peck grows progressively more complicated and co-dependent, though it’s not until the very end of the play that we find out exactly when it turned dark.
