"Funny, moving and intimate, '4000 Miles' is a rare show that entertains while emphasizing a message of compassion."

STYLE Weekly

"Languid and haunting as a study of human intimacy."

Richmond Times-Dispatch

"Highlights the healing power of compassion
Meaningful and effective performances... It feels true."


A beautifully spun, comedic, heart-wrenching story of an elderly woman and her 21-year-old grandson seeking respite from a recent tragedy. His visit extends until the unlikely pair builds a loving familial bond from the ground up and healing begins. Winner of the 2013 Obie Award: Best New American Play; 2013 Pulitzer Prize finalist.

One hour and 45 minutes (no intermission)
