Amy Herzog's 4,000 Miles to Receive London Premiere at the Print Room

News   Amy Herzog's 4,000 Miles to Receive London Premiere at the Print Room Amy Herzog's 4,000 Miles, which premiered at Off-Broadway's Duke on 42nd Street under the auspices of Lincoln Center Theater in 2011 before being remounted at Lincoln Center's Mitzi Newhouse in 2012 with the same company, will receive its London premiere at the Print Room, beginning performances May 14 prior to an official opening May 15, for a three-week run through June 1.

James Dacre's production transfers from Bath Theatre Royal's Ustinov Studio, where it is currently running through May 11. The company features Sara Kestelman, Daniel Boyd, Jing Lusi and Jenny Hulse.

In the play, it’s the middle of the night when 21-year-old Leo (Boyd) arrives on the doorstep of the West Village apartment where his feisty 91-year-old grandmother Vera (Kestleman) 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.

Herzog's other plays include After the Revolution, The Wendy Play and Belleville.

4,000 Miles was the recipient of two 2012 OBIE Awards, including Best New American Play and had its world premiere at New York’s Lincoln Center Theater in 2011.
