'4000 Miles' to make Aurora Theatre debut

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- Picture this: an old-world grandmother, New Age grandson and a tiny New York apartment – what could possibly go wrong?

4000 Miles rolls into Lawrenceville’s Aurora Theatre next month. Dynamic writer Amy Herzog uses her own feisty grandmother’s experiences and stories to shape the character of elderly Vera in this altogether sensitive and comical story.

Audiences are invited to take a trip to New York City’s Greenwich Village and experience the implausible, yet beautiful relationship of two characters, as they embark on a journey to find their place in today’s world.

When Leo, the 21-year-old grandson, endures the heartwrenching loss of his best friend while on a cross-country bike trip, he finds himself feeling empty and alone. While problems with his parents and girlfriend keep multiplying, he realizes he has nowhere to turn but to his lively 91-year-old grandmother, Vera, for support and a place to temporarily bunk. Throughout the course of their newfound roommate situation, the two irritate, baffle and ultimately find themselves vastly more similar than either expected.

Recommended for adults with a penchant for drama and comedy, 4000 Miles is presented Feb. 12 through Mar. 1. Tickets can be purchased for $20-$30 per person online at tickets.auroratheatre.com or by calling the box office at 678-226-6222.

Show times are Thursday through Saturday at 8 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday at 2:30 p.m.
