With a precision that dazzles, playwright Amy Herzog measures the distances between generations -- both vast and nearly microscopic -- in her acclaimed new play 4000 Miles. Exhausted in every way after a cross-country bike journey, 21-year-old Leo ends up crashing and crossing swords with his feisty grandmother Vera at her Greenwich Village apartment. As his overnight stay stretches into a longer engagement, he comes to realize he has more in common with his grandmother, a 91-year-old leftist, than perhaps either would care to admit. An Obie winner for Best New American Play and a Pulitzer finalist, 4000 Miles was named Time magazine's No. 1 play of 2012. Now Pacifica Spindrift Players Theatre presents an exciting new production of what The New York Times calls "a funny, moving, altogether wonderful drama."
