4000 Miles is a dramatic comedy by Amy Herzog.
The play ran Off-Broadway in 2011, and again in 2012 and was a finalist for the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
When 21 year-old Leo suffers a major loss while he was on a cross-country bike trip, he seeks solace from his feisty 91 year-old grandmother Vera in her West Village apartment. Over the course of a single month, these roommates infuriate, bewilder, and ultimately reach each other. Herzog used her grandmother's "words, habits and history to fashion the character of Vera Joseph".
The Time magazine reviewer wrote: "Herzog unravels the details slowly, with uncommon narrative skill....Everything about 4000 Miles seems fresh, particularized, plausible....4000 Miles is the family drama that really sticks with you, easily the best play of the season."
"I ... couldn’t wait for the second act to start because I wanted to know more about these characters."
"[Its a show] ...that will stay with you long after you leave the parking lot, which is why I can’t help but give the show a strong recommendation. It’s funny, sad, and feels like we are peering in through the window at the lives of strangers."

"A funny, moving, altogether wonderful drama. . . A heartening reminder that a keen focus on life's small moments can pay off in a big way onstage." - The New York Times
