4000 MILES
By Amy Herzog

It should have been the trip of a lifetime. But in this tender, beguiling play, 21-year old Leo’s bike journey across America hasn’t turned out the way he hoped and he ends up staying with his 91-year old grandma, Vera. They’re unlikely roomies.

Family is family, though, even if your grandmother is an irascible old Marxist, and especially when your grandson has some serious healing to do. “Funny, moving, altogether wonderful” (New York Times)
