They’ll appear in Paula Vogel’s 1998 Pulitzer Prize-winning play “How I Learned to Drive” for a Sept. 18-Oct. 10 run at Harvard U.’s Loeb Drama Center, the ART’s home base. The production will be directed by ART resident director David Wheeler.

The cast will be completed by Aysan Celik, Jonathan Hova and Kate Wisniewski. The set will be by Michael Griggs, costumes by Viola McKenthuen, lighting by John Ambrosone, and sound by Christopher Walker. Single tickets will run from $23 to $55.

The last time a Vogel play was produced by the ART was in 1994 when it mounted the world premiere of “Hot ‘n’ Throbbing.”
