By Amy Herzog
Directed by Jennifer Uphoff Gray

Finalist for the 2013 Pulitzer Prize

Free-spirited 21-year-old Leo sets off from the West Coast on an epic cross-country bike adventure. By the time he shows up at his grandmother Vera’s New York City apartment, his journey has taken some unexpected turns. Leo hopes for a short-term escape from the chain of events that has left him estranged from his family and friends. But as days turn into weeks, he and Vera bond over love, loss, and the difficulties of growing up and growing old. With both humor and heartbreak, 4000 Miles takes an intimate look at the road to self-acceptance we all must travel — and the unexpected connections we make along the way.

“Plays as truthful and touching and fine as Amy Herzog’s 4000 Miles come along once or maybe twice a season, if we’re lucky. This is the rare theatrical production that achieves perfection on its own terms.”
- The New York Times
