CSM Theater Presents “How I Learned to Drive”

March 2, 2023

The College of Southern Maryland’s (CSM) wildly funny and surprising production of Paula Vogel’s Pulitzer Prize winning play, “How I Learned to Drive” opens this March 3 at the Brad and Linda Gottfried Theater on the La Plata campus. Performances run through March 12.

With a cast compromised almost entirely of CSM alumni and current students, “How I Learned to Drive” is a funny, surprising and devastating tale of survival as seen through the lens of a troubling relationship between a young girl and an older man.

“This is a ‘me too’ story from before there was ‘me too,’” said director Suzanne Donohue.  “It’s tragic and upsetting, but in the end its empowering.”

Tickets are $15 general admission; $10 for military with ID, seniors 65 and up and youth 17 and below; and $5 CSM for students, staff and faculty with ID. One ticket per ID.  Tickets may be purchased with cash at the box office or online with a credit card. Make note that mature subject matter is discussed.  

Performances will be held March 3, 4 10, and 11 at 7:30 p.m. and March 5 and 12 at 3 p.m.

"How I Learned to Drive” is presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLC, servicing the Dramatists Play Service collection.
