AMY HERZOG

4000 Miles & After the Revolution

Known for delicately detailed

character studies that subtly balance

humor and insight, Herzog is

swiftly emerging as a striking new

voice in the American theatre.

After the Revolution

is an astute and

ironic drama about how society

appropriates history for its own

psychological needs.

4000 Miles

is

a quiet rumination on mortality in

which a twenty-one-year-old seeks

solace from his feisty grandmother.

compassionate,

The Great God Pan

tells the intimate tale of what is lost

and won when a hidden truth is

suddenly revealed.
