When 21-year-old Leo Joseph-Connell suffers a tragic loss during a cross country cycling trip he eventually finds himself at the Manhattan apartment of his 91-year-old grandmother Vera Joseph. She: an old Communist who lives alone; him: a latter-day hippie. Though intending to stay for just the night, over the course of the month to come two people from two different generations become unlikely roommates who bewilder, infuriate and ultimately connect. And when his old girlfriend shows up, Leo begins to reveal the mysterious events of his journey, and grandmother and grandson discover the narrow line between growing up and growing old.

Amy Herzog's delightful and heart-warming dramatic comedy ran Off Broadway in 2011, and again in 2012. The play was the recipient of two Off Broadway Awards in 2012, including Best New American Play, and was also a finalist for the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
