Overview

It’s the middle of the night when 21 year-old Leo arrives on the doorstep of the West Village apartment where his feisty 91 year-old grandmother Vera lives. She’s an old Communist who lives alone, he’s a latter-day hippie, recently returned from a cross-country bike trip which ended traumatically. over the course of a single month, these unlikely roommates infuriate, bewilder, and ultimately connect. When Leo’s old girlfriend shows up and he begins to reveal the mysterious events of his journey, Leo and Vera discover the narrow line between growing up and growing old.

Peopled with nuanced, beautifully-drawn characters, Amy Herzog’s award-winning play has established her as a remarkable new talent.

Sara Kestelman plays Vera. She won a Laurence Olivier Theatre Award for her performance as Fraulein Schneider in Cabaret in the London 1994 revival, and has performed extensively with the Royal National Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company.

4000 Miles was the recipient of two 2012 oBIE Awards, including Best New American Play. It had its
2011 world premiere at New york’s Lincoln Center Theater, playing to sold-out houses and receiving
staggering accolades from critics. This will be its UK premiere
