How I Learned to Drive: Peel the Limelight brings Paula Vogel’s controversial play to life

“One of the most discomforting love stories to emerge from American theater” – The New York Times

Dysfunctional sexual relationships from a famous off-Broadway play “How I Learned To Drive” will be brought to life in Bangkok by Thai and expat actors of Peel the Limelight.

Featuring the 1998 Pulitzer prize-winning screenplay by Paula Vogel, the play tells the story of a young girl, L’il Bit, who has always felt like an outsider and that no one in her dysfunctional family understands her — except Uncle Peck.

Set against the backdrop of a Driver’s Education course, this is a story of love and sexual experience before the age of consent, manipulated from the child’s desire for a father figure.

The play will confront audiences with the cycle of abuse and challenges the audience to question whether “all roads lead back home.”

As the play deals with controversial themes like sexual experience before the age of consent, it’s not recommended for viewers aged under 15.

The play will be performed in English with Thai subtitles from March 3 – 12.

The door opens at 7pm. Entry is 600THB, student discounts apply. Book your ticket on their website.
