4000 MILES is Closer than You Think

Join us for the Actors Theatre of Phoenix production of 4000 MILES, opening January 11 at The Black Theatre Troupe/Helen K. Mason Performing Arts Center in Phoenix.

At the end of his cross-country bike trip, 21-year old Leo arrives unannounced at the Greenwich Village apartment of his 91-year old Jewish grandmother, Vera. As an overnight couch-surf turns into an extended stay, this compassionate and unsentimental play explores the funny, frustrating, and ultimately life-changing relationship between a grandson learning to face his life and a grandmother who is starting to forget hers.
