Over the course of a single month, these unlikely roommates infuriate, bewilder, and ultimately reach each other. 4000 Miles looks at how two outsiders find their way in today’s world.

The Women by Clare Boothe Luce, Directed by Carin Heidelbach
February 6 – 22
Women’s varied roles in society are explored in this modern classic comedy about the demands of womanhood. A sophisticated group of women struggle to fill the narrowly defined roles of wife, mother, confidant, and seductress. Luce satirically exposes the expectation set for women by themselves, others, and ultimately by society as a whole.
Faith Healer by Brian Friel, Directed by Jack Souza
April 24 – May 10
In this darkly lyrical tale questions of reality and truth are raised by four contra-dictory accounts of shared events, divided among three characters. It is the story of Frank Hardy, a traveling showman who also occasionally heals people; his bitter, angry, but still loving wife; and his manager, who has given up his career to promote Frank. Each account sheds more light on the events that lead to story’s climax. “One of those rare works of art audiences are destined to recall as a deeply personal experience. A powerful piece of writing.”-The New York Times
