Herzog play for London

The play that put a Jewish-American writer in the running for a Pulitzer Prize, will be staged in London next month.

Amy Herzog was named as a finalist for the most prestigious award in American culture this week, for 4000 Miles, her drama about the reunion between a communist grandmother and her 21-year-old grandson.

The play is currently being staged at the Theatre Royal Bath, before coming to the Print Room in Notting Hill next month.

Nathan Englander, a New York-based writer who has lived in Israel, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for fiction for his Jewish-themed collection of short stories, What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank.

The prize was awarded after a two-year gap — in 2012, the judges felt that no book was good enough to win it
