The Vineyard Theatre will welcome back original cast members from How I Learned to Drive and The Dying Gaul, including Mary-Louise Parker, Linda Emond and Tim Hopper, for two special reunion events this summer.

Tony Award nominee Emond, Hopper, Cotter Smith and Robert Emmet Lunney will read Tony Award nominee Craig Lucas' 1998 play The Dying Gaul June 24 at 8 PM.

Tony Award winner Parker, David Morse and additional original cast members will reunite for a reading of Paula Vogel's Pulitzer Prize-winning 1997 dark comedy How I Learned to Drive July 1 at 8 PM.
