From the producers of Punk Rock and References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot comes the touching and poignant tale of colliding generations in Amy Herzog’s multi award-winning play 4000 Miles.
Vera is a vibrantly dimensional 91-year-old – prickly, stubborn and mentally acute. Leo is her 21 year-old grandson who shows up in the middle of the night at her Greenwich Village apartment.
He’s just biked cross-country from Washington to New York. Along the way, something happened, a loss, and heartbreaking loss for which he cannot bring himself to accept.
Bridging gulfs of space and time, Vera and Leo connect over several weeks of co-habitation, negotiating romantic potholes with an estranged girlfriend and an art student Leo picks up at a bar.
Directed by Sydney Theatre Award Winner, Anthony Skuse.
