"In 4000 Miles , a warm-hearted new play by Amy Herzog, both love and irritability are woven into an illumination of the healing process after the loss of a loved one. The sensitive play [is] filled with small, revelatory and often humorous moments between a grandmother and her grandson."

- The Associated Press

" 4000 Miles , Amy Herzog's appealing new play, unfolds with the unassuming ease of conversations overheard, among people with complicated relationships."
