GableStage presents 4000 Miles by Amy Herzog

From March 16 through April 14, 2013.

A beautifully rendered portrait of the relationship between an old-style lefty grandmother and her new-style lefty grandson. 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 in her West Village apartment. Over the course of a single month, these unlikely roommates infuriate, bewilder, and ultimately reach each other.

“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.”
– New York Times
