Photos: Gently Comic Drama 4000 MILES Takes to the Stage

Hampton Theatre Company's "4000 Miles," Amy Herzog's gently comic drama that won the Obie Award for Best New American Play and was a finalist for the 2013 Pulitzer Prize, begins its run this week in Quogue.

In "4000 Miles," Herzog creates a truthful and touching portrait of the often contentious but finally loving relationship between a crusty, old-style lefty grandmother, Vera Joseph, and her rudderless, new-style lefty grandson, Leo Joseph-Connell.

The cast of "4000 Miles" features three Hampton Theatre Company veterans and one newcomer. Playing Vera Joseph is HTC artistic director Diana Marbury, last seen as Grandma Kurnitz in the 2016 production of "Lost in Yonkers." Ben Schnickel, last on the HTC stage in the roles of Jim, Tom and Kenneth in "Clybourne Park in 2015," has the role of her grandson Leo.

Amanda Griemsmann, who appeared most recently as Nina in the 2016 HTC production of "Vanya, Sonia, Masha and Spike," play's Leo's on-again-off-again girlfriend BeC. Newcomer Samantha Herrera, a graduate of The Neighborhood Playhouse, plays Amanda, a girl Leo brings home from a bar.
