The Old Vic, London
Starring Timothée Chalamet and Eileen Atkins

Timothée Chalamet will make his West End theatre debut alongside Eileen Atkins in a brand new production of Amy Herzog’s Pulitzer Prize-nominated play 4000 Miles, opening at The Old Vic theatre in London in April 2020.

Herzog’s play is set at the beginning of summer as 21-year-old Leo is setting off from the West Coast to cycle across the US with his best friend. After being disconnected for weeks, Leo turns up at his 91-year-old grandmother Vera’s apartment in Manhattan in the middle of the night.

Vera is inspired by Herzog’s own grandmother, Leepee, whose words, habits and history were used to fashion the character, who had initially appeared in the playwright’s earlier work After the Revolution.

4000 Miles will run at the Old Vic from 6th April to 23rd May, with an official opening night on 16th April.

Timothée Chalamet is an Academy Award nominee for his role in Luca Guadagnino’s drama Call Me By Your Name, which made Chalamet the third-youngest nominee in the best actor category ever. His other screen roles include Beautiful BoyLady Bird and the Netflix period drama The King.

Eileen Atkins returns to the Old Vic having first appeared at the theatre for a season in 1961, where she starred in Roots, Twelfth Night, Richard III and The Tempest. She is a three-time Olivier Award winner for her performances in The Unexpected ManHonour, and a triple-bill of Cymbeline, The Winter's Tale and Mountain Language. Her most recent West End role was Florian Zeller’s The Height of the Storm, which later transferred to Broadway.

The play will be directed by Old Vic artistic director Matthew Warchus, whose credits include Matilda the MusialGhost: the MusicalThe Norman Conquests and David Mamet’s Speed-the-Plow.

Playwright Herzog recently had her play Belleville staged at the Donmar Warehouse, but this Old Vic production will be the first time 4000 Miles has been staged in the UK.

4000 Miles tickets are on sale now.
