4000 Miles

This Pulitzer Prize finalist and Time Magazine’s “best play of the year” explores both growing up and growing old.  With his backpack, bicycle, and stories of his life-changing cross-country cycling trip in tow, 21-year-old Leo lands on the New York City doorstep of his 91-year-old leftist grandmother, Vera.  Their month together as sometimes combative, yet always compassionate, intergenerational roommates is simply a wonderful mix of the funny, the moving and the revealing.  This insightful play delves into the intimacies and complexities of adult relationships with families, friends and lovers.
