A lifetime can pass in the sixty miles between a boy's soccer practice and his father's new apartment. In this world premiere production, playwright Dan LeFranc and Obie Award-winning director Anne Kauffman explore the dynamic - both hilarious and devastating - of a father and son trying to make sense of their relationship after a messy divorce. A haunted and fractured father-son tale, SIXTY MILES TO SILVER LAKE looks at the violent desire to erase the indelible marks that a father can leave on his only child and at the time and space that sometimes exists between the leather seats of a father's used car.
