Generational gaps create tension in relationships in Key City Public Theatre’s production of Amy Herzog’s Pulitzer finalist drama, 4,000 Miles.
At Key City Public Theatre, 4,000 Miles opens October 6 and runs through October 23. Leo has ridden his bike across the country, to arrive on the doorstep of his grandmother Vera, only for Vera to be unable to hear the doorbell. Likewise, when Vera finally makes it to the door, Leo cannot understand her, because she is not wearing her dentures. These failures of communication are the perfect introduction to the relationships that Herzog explores in her play. 4,000 Miles looks at people who are flawed, but so desperate to be vulnerable in the most painfully human ways possible. The struggles of coming to terms with their losses, and each other, is treated with a deft touch that lends levity, and lets their humanity shine through, in all the right moments.
