Amy Herzog’s acclaimed play, 4000 Miles, offers a compelling exploration of human connections, grief and the unanticipated paths to solace. Set against the backdrop of New York City’s West Village, this production unveils the profound story of 21-year-old Leo and his spirited 91-year-old grandmother, Vera Joseph.

Amidst Leo’s turmoil following a devastating loss during his cross-country bike expedition, he seeks refuge in Vera’s bustling apartment, inadvertently transforming their lives. A tale of unexpected roommates embarking on a month-long emotional rollercoaster, 4000 Miles delves deep into their complexities, from Leo’s struggles with love and loss to Vera’s rekindled sense of companionship after years of solitude.

Herzog’s poignant narrative, a Pulitzer Prize finalist in 2013, resonates with audiences through its compassionate portrayal of chosen and unchosen families, spotlighting the profound healing power found within trust and genuine connection.

Witness the captivating journey of two outsiders navigating life’s uncertainties and forging an unlikely bond that transcends generations.
