About the Play:

4000 Miles has become a favourite of acting teachers for Female/Male scene-study showcases.

4000 Miles is a full-length dramatic comedy by Amy Herzog. The Off-Broadway hit about a 21-year-old who shows up without invitation at his feisty 91-year-old grandmother's West Village apartment. What begins as an overnight visit turns into a weeks-long stay as the two unlikely roommates ultimately reach each other and carefully learn how to love each other.

4000 Miles is an inter-generational comedy about finding peace, love and understanding. After suffering a major loss while he was on a cross-country bike trip, 21 year-old Leo seeks solace from his feisty 91 year-old grandmother Vera in her West Village apartment. Over the course of a single month, these unlikely roommates infuriate, bewilder, and carefully learn how to love each other. 4000 Miles looks at how two outsiders find their way in today's world. Known for delicately detailed character studies that subtly balance humour and insight, Amy Herzog has crafted a quiet rumination on mortality populated with beautifully drawn characters you'll fall in love with.

4000 Miles premiered in 2011 Off-Broadway by Lincoln Center's emerging-artist arm, LCT3, subsequently winning the 2012 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award, the 2012 Obie Award for Best New American Play, and was a finalist for the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Time Magazine called 4000 Miles, "the best play of the season – hands down."
