It’s more than age that separates the two characters. Leo, at the end of a cross-country bicycle trip, is a bit of a wanderer, and Vera lives a very orderly life. The two are also on opposite sides of the political spectrum (ninety-one-year-old Vera is an extreme leftist). The two do have something in common: “It would be fair to say that both characters are lonely,” Jaffee tells us. The drama and poignancy of the play are mixed with some humor, making it a show that will appeal to viewers of all ages, Jaffee says.
