Cap Stage presents ‘4000 Miles’

By March 07, 2014

Capital Stage continues its ninth season, The Homefront: A Season of Soul-Stirring Plays, with the 2013 Pulitzer Prize finalist “4000 Miles” by Amy Herzog. This humorous yet honest play grapples themes of family and grief with wit and spontaneity.

Capital Stage’s production will be directed by Carolyn Howarth, will feature Dee Maaske a 21-year veteran of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, and will run through April 13.

After suffering a major loss while he was on a cross-country bike trip, 21 year-old Leo seeks solace from his feisty 91 year-old grandmother Vera in her West Village apartment. Over the course of a single month, these unlikely roommates infuriate, bewilder and ultimately reach each other.

The play “4000  Miles” is a wonderfully funny, touching and ultimately surprising play about growing up and finding home.

Carolyn Howarth  directs the ensemble featuring Elizabeth Holzman, Sylvia Kwan, Maaske and Teddy Spencer.

The design team includes Jonathan Williams, scenic; Paulette Gilbert, costumes; and Les Solomon, lighting.

Showtimes will be Wednesdays at 7 p.m.; Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m.; and Sundays at 2 p.m.

General tickets range from $26 to $38.

Tickets are available at the Capital Stage box office, 2215 J St. in Sacramento, by phone at 916-995-5464 or online at

Patrons who ride their bikes to Cap Stage for the play will get $2 off per ticket. Tickets are subject to availability.
