Finalist for the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama!
Winner of two 2012 Obie Awards:
Best New American Play (Amy Herzog)
Best Performance (Gabriel Ebert and Mary Louise Wilson)

"Perfection! Plays as truthful and touching and fine as Amy Herzog's 4000 MILES come along once or maybe twice a season, if we're lucky. Mary Louise Wilson's great performance is stage acting at its most accomplished. Gabriel Ebert breaks your heart. Their extraordinary performances bring matching reserves of humor and honesty under the sensitive direction of Daniel Aukin. This is the rare theatrical production that achieves perfection on its own terms." - Isherwood, The New York Times


It's the middle of the night. Leo (Gabriel Ebert), age 21, has just arrived on the doorstep of the West Village apartment where his feisty 91 year old grandmother Vera (Mary Louise Wilson) lives. He's been traveling on a bike for months, and now he's looking for a place to hunker down. Their evolving relationship, spanning a 70 year age gap, is at the heart of 4000 MILES.

The world premiere of this play was presented under the auspices of our LCT3 program in the summer of 2011. To learn more about the original production of 4000 MILES, click here.
