Waltrudis Buck portrays the grandmother in ‘4000 Miles,’ a play about communication between a grandmother and her grandson.

Vermont Stage Company will present “4000 Miles,” a hilarious and heartfelt new play about a grandmother and her grandson trying to find common ground, beginning March 13 at FlynnSpace.

Written by Amy Herzog, the play stars New York City based actress Waltrudis Buck as Vera, a 90-year-old grandmother whose world is turned upside down when her 20-year-old grandson Leo (played by local actor Willy McKay) shows up at her front door exhausted and looking for a place to stay for the night. The night turns into days, then weeks, as they argue, laugh and find comfort in each other’s company, discovering that they may have more in common than they realized.

The cast also includes New York actress Katie Peters, as well as local actress Andrea Underhill (making her VSC debut), with direction by Michael Dove.

“4000 Miles” runs for three weeks from March13-31 at FlynnSpace, Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets: Flynn Box Office 802-86-FLYNN or www.flynntix.org.
