23rd Season: 2018 / 2019

4000 Miles

21 + 91: a relative equation

February 13 - March 2, 2019

by Amy Herzog
Directed by Gary Hopper

After suffering a major loss while he was on a cross-country bike trip, 21-year-old Leo seeks solace from his feisty 91 year-old grandmother Vera in her West Village apartment. Over the course of a single month, these unlikely roommates infuriate, bewilder and ultimately reach each other. 4000 Miles looks at how two outsiders find their way in today’s world.
