The Print Room – 4000 MILES, May 14th-June 1st

Another new play opening at the Print Room in Notting Hill this spring.  Following performances at the Ustinov Studio, Theatre Royal Bath, James Dacre’s production of Amy Herzog’s 4000 Miles transfers to The Print Room for three weeks.

From the Print RoomIt’s the middle of the night when 21 year-old Leo arrives on the doorstep of the West  Village apartment where his feisty 91 year-old grandmother Vera lives. She’s an old Communist who lives alone, he’s a latter-day hippie, recently returned from a cross-country bike trip which ended traumatically.

Over the course of a single month, these unlikely roommates infuriate, bewilder, and ultimately connect. When Leo’s old girlfriend shows up and he begins to reveal the mysterious events of his journey, Leo and Vera discover the narrow line between growing up and growing old.

Peopled with nuanced, beautifully-drawn characters, Amy Herzog’s award-winning play has established her as a remarkable new talent. 4000 Miles was the recipient of two 2012 Obie Awards, including Best New American Play. It had its 2011 world première at New York’s Lincoln Center Theater.
