EXCLUSIVE: Paula Vogel, a prolific and engaging writer, won the Pulitzer Prize in 1998 for her drama How I Learned To Drive, which co-starred Mary-Louise Parker and David Morse in a time-spanning play about a young girl’s relationship with her predatory uncle.

Vogel currently is playwright in residence at the Yale Repertory Theatre and artistic associate at the Long Wharf Theatre, both in New Haven, CT. Work in progress includes a commission for Yale Repertory (based on The God Of Vengeance) in collaboration with director Rebecca Taichman. Vogel’s extraordinary body of work includes an early metaphorical play about AIDS, The Baltimore Waltz, and a sly revision of Othello called Desdemona.
