    "How I Learned to Drive" is very modern in its presentation, but enormously unnerving. Its use of a Greek chorus and minimal stage props just adds to the eeriness and vulgarity of the story. What is scary and truthful about this play is that in some families, occurrences like this may be happening. The character of Peck will give you goose bumps/5(37).   Set in the late '60s, How I Learned to Drive stars Mary-Louise Parker--the gay-friendly star of the films Fried Green Tomatoes and Longtime Companion--as Li'l Bit, a year-old with a great body and a good head on her shoulders. Her Uncle Peck (David Morse of television's St. Elsewhere) appreciates her brains and her beauty.
