“…it’s evident that this is a play with real characters, the kind that are so gritty and raw they practically ooze off the stage… A gifted cast and strong staging choices make each of these relationships authentic… The play’s ending is sudden, quick, and direct, much like the moments of humor and sensitivity that shine through in this brilliantly layered script.”
Susie Potter, Triangle Arts & Entertainment

“Director Desdemona Chiang has realized a family portrait that crosses generational social, political, and cultural lines with ease and tenderness.”
— Martha Keravuori and Chuck Galle, Triangle Arts & Entertainment

“PlayMakers has brought 4000 Miles to life with humor and a sense of wonder: as these two souls find each other and grow from their relationship, a wonder at the life between the two grows… PRC presents this encounter with the hope that grandparents and grandchildren who see this show find in it a reason to reconnect.”
Alan R. Hall, CVNC

“…a wonderfully witty and beautifully thoughtful play…”
Sarah McQuillian, The Daily Tar Heel

“Between Herzog’s nuanced character development and gentle humor, and Desdemona Chiang’s really lovely direction, with its luxurious pace and naturalistic emotional build, PRC’s 4000 Miles consoles the heart while satisfying the mind.”
Kate Dobbs, The Five Point Star
