“In 4000 Miles a warm-hearted new play by Amy Herzog, both love and irritability are woven into an illumination of the healing process after the loss of a loved one.

“Amy Herzog[‘s] fine, deeply affecting dual character study… Although 4000 Miles makes one think of a first-rate novella, it is solidly theatrical. 4000 Miles is the sort of rich, satisfying play you should take your grandmother to — especially if she’s as smart and fierce as Vera.” – Time Out New YorkRead More Here
