4000 Miles

Called “the best play of 2012” by TIME magazine, this funny and heartwarming drama looks at how two outsiders find their way in the world today. After suffering a major loss, 21 year-old Leo arrives unannounced at his 91 year-old Grandmother Vera’s West Village apartment in the middle of the night, seeking a place to rest after his cross-country bicycle journey. Over a single month, these unlikely roommates infuriate, bewilder, and ultimately reach each other. This Pulitzer Prize finalist is a stirring reminder of what separates generations and what has the power to bring them together.
“A funny, moving, altogether wonderful drama. . . A heartening reminder that a keen focus on life’s small moments can pay off in a big way onstage.” – The New York Times
“Herzog’s…humor, honesty and narrative subtlety make this a rarity: a family play that avoids sentimentality or sitcom shtick” – TIME Magazine
