WHAT’S ON STAGE NEXT

MARCH 14th-17th, 2024

 

Authenticity Theater is proud to partner with the Conyers Rockdale Council for the Arts to present Amy Herzog’s fabulous play 4000 MILES

March 14th – 17th at the CRCA Black Box Theater in Conyers, GA

Directed by James Carey

Octogenarian political activist Vera Joseph’s solitary existence is entirely shaken when her grandson, Leo, appears at the door in the middle of the night Leo is fresh from a cross-country bike ride, and assures Vera that he won’t stay long. Leo, however, is in  crisis, confused by an on-again, off-again romance, furious with his mother’s incessant meddling, and grieving deeply for his best friend and biking partner, Micah, who is recently deceased. While Leo seeks solace in his grandmother, Vera finds companionship in another person for the first time since the loss of her husband, Joe. A finalist for the 2013 Pulitzer Prize in Drama, Amy Herzog’s 4000 Miles is a compassionate, intimate, and frequently funny play that examines the love of the family we can choose, the family we can’t, and the healing power of trust.

Set in St Louis during the depression era of the 1930s, THE GLASS MENAGERIE s the poignant drama of a family’s gradual disintegration, under pressure both from outside and within. A frustrated mother persuades her rebellious son to provide a ‘gentleman caller’ for her shy, crippled daughter, but her romantic dreams are shattered by the intervention of harsh reality.
