It should have been the trip of a lifetime. But in this hilarious, touching 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. Generation gap? Try generation chasm. Family is family, though, even if your grandmother is an irascible old Marxist, and especially when your grandson has some serious healing to do.
4000 Miles is “a funny, moving, altogether wonderful drama” (New York Times) and “the sort of rich, satisfying play you should take your grandmother to — especially if she’s as smart and fierce as Vera” (Time Out).
