After suffering a major loss while he was on a cross-country bike trip, 21 year-old Leo seeks solace from his feisty 91 year-old grandmother Vera in her West Village apartment. Over the course of a single month, these unlikely roommates infuriate, bewilder, and ultimately reach each other. 4000 Miles looks at how two outsiders find their way in today's world.

"This play was a finalist for the Pulitzer in 2013. You'll see why. It is a fine character study, grief study, family study, heartbreak study, etc. It is hilarious and sad, simple and understated, but complex because of Herzog's detailed observation. Also, the character of Leo is one that Missoula knows well - a cross- country-hippie-cyclist desperately trying to find authentic connection and solace from his grief in this alienating world. Luckily, he has his 91-year-old socialist grandmother, Vera, to help." - Mason Wagner, Director, BetweenTheLines

4000 Miles Reviews:
"A finely wrought play." - Charles Isherwood, NYTimes

"If your heart is sick or just needs warming, go and see this play. If you are a baby boomer who doesn't understand your grandchildren or are from Gen Y and, like, really weirded out by your grandparents, go and see this play. If you simply love theatre, go and see this play." - John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald
