4000 Miles

By Amy Herzog

Show Info

“…funny, moving, altogether wonderful. . . A heartening reminder that a keen focus on life’s small moments can pay off in a big way onstage.” —THE NEW YORK TIMES

An intergenerational comedy about finding peace, love and understanding.

New York. The middle of the night. Vera, an irascible, politically active 90-year old is awakened by her grandson Leo, who has cycled from Seattle on a trip with his best friend.

In their month together, Vera and Leo bewilder each other, argue and connect as they discover the thin line between growing up and growing old.

A finalist for the 2013 Pulitzer Prize, Herzog’s 4000 Miles is populated with beautifully drawn characters you’ll fall in love with.

WHY I CHOSE THIS PLAY
Amy Herzog’s writing is so exquisite, and this story is so simple and true and affecting, I have wanted to program it for years. Funny and recognizable – it sneaks up on you, and before you know it – you don’t want to say goodbye to these people. —MS
