A Night at the Theater - in Support of Shalom House
Sat, April 1, 2017, 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM EDT
Join Shalom House for an evening of delicious food and drink, silent auction and a performance of 4000 Miles- all to support the work and mission of Shalom House.
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. Ninety-one year old political activist Vera
Joseph’s solitary existence is 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.
