The West End Premiere of Amy Herzog's play 4000 Miles in London starring Eileen Atkins and Timothee Chalamet

His life just starting, hers nearly ended, in a faded Greenwich Village apartment their griefs collide. At the beginning of the summer 21-year-old Leo set out from the West Coast cycling across America with his best friend. After weeks of radio silence, no one is more surprised than his 91-year-old grandmother, Vera, when Leo turns up on her Manhattan doorstep in the middle of the night.

Please note that the recommended age for this production is thirteen and above.

The cast features Eileen Atkins as 'Vera' and Timothee Chalamet as 'Leo'. Directed by Matthew Warchus with designs by Rob Howell, lighting by Hugh Vanstone, and sound by Simon Baker.

Eileen Atkins's London stage credits include the roles of 'Madeleine' in Jonathan Kent's production of Florian Zeller's play The Height of the Storm at Wyndham's Theatre in 2018; 'Margot' in Roger Michell's production of Joanna Murray-Smith's play The Female Of The Species at the Vaudeville Theatre in 2008; 'Louise Rafi' in Jonathan Kent's revival of Edward Bond's play The Sea at the Haymarket Theatre in 2008; 'Meg' in Lindsay Posner's revival of Harold Pinter's play The Birthday Party at the Duchess Theatre in 2005; 'Honor' in Roger Michell's production of Joanna Murray-Smith's play Honour at the National Theatre's Cottesloe Theatre in 2003; 'Martha' in Matthew Warchus' production of Yasmina Reza's The Unexpected Man at the Duchess Theatre in 1998; 'Virginia Woolf' in Patrick Garland's production of her own play Vita and Virginia at the Ambassadors Theatre in 1993; 'Hannah Jelkes' in Richard Eyre's revival of Tennessee Williams' The Night Of The Iguana at the National Theatre's Lyttelton Theatre in 1992; 'Elderly Woman' in Harold Pinter's production of his own play Mountain Language at the National Theatre's Lyttelton Theatre in 1988; and the title role in John Dove's revival of George Bernard Shaw's play Saint Joan at the Old Vic Theatre in 1977.

Timothee Chalamet is best known for his film roles which include 'Kyle Scheible' in Greta Gerwig's 2017 Lady Bird; and 'Elio Perlman' in James Ivory's 2017 Call Me by Your Name (based on the novel by Andre Aciman).
