Performing at first in Yiddish and German, the playÆs subject matter wasnÆt deemed contentious until it was produced in English, when the American audiences were scandalized by the onstage depiction of an amorous affair between two women. Paula VogelÆs newest work traces the trajectory of the showÆs success through its tour in Europe to its abrupt and explosive demise on Broadway in 1923--including the arrest of the entire productionÆs cast and crew. Paula Vogel's play How I Learned to Drive received the 1998 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the Lortel Prize, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and New York Drama Critics Awards for Best Play, as well as earning Vogel her second Obie. Other plays include The Baltimore Waltz, Desdemona, And Baby Makes Seven, The Long Christmas Ride Home, A Civil War Christmas, and Don Juan Comes Home from Iraq. She has also had a distinguished career as a teacher and mentor to younger playwrights, first at Brown University and currently at the Yale School of Drama. Based on real events, a provocative new drama from a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright about one of BroadwayÆs greatest controversies
