NVA Playreading: Amy Herzog’s 4000 Miles

by The Editors on October 21, 2013


Tonight, (Monday, October 21, 2013) at 7 PM the New Village Arts Theatre in the Village of Carlsbad will be presenting a playing reading of Amy Herzog’s 4000 Miles. The play was a finalist for the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and ran off Broadway in 2011 and 2012.

After suffering a major loss while he was on a cross-country bike trip, 21 year-old Leo seeks solace from his feisty 91 year-old grandmother Vera in her West Village apartment. Over the course of a single month, these unlikely roommates infuriate, bewilder, and ultimately reach each other. 4000 MILES looks at how two outsiders find their way in today’s world.

This just might be one of the best plays you’ll have read to you this year. Attendees are asked to make a $10 donation per ticket. The New Village Arts Theatre is located at 2787 State St, Carlsbad, CA 92008.

Carlsbad City Council Bans Pet Store Pet Sales

by The Editors on October 9, 2013

Doggy+CopyCarlsbadistan’s City Council last night (October 8, 2013) approved an “urgency ordinance” banning the sales of dogs and cats at retail pet stores, according to a story on NBC San Deigo.

The city is pushing the bill in an attempt to shut down puppy mills and kitten factories where profit is given priority over the well-being of the animals. . . The San Diego Department of Animal Services said these substandard facilities lack animal husbandry practices, and animals born there are more likely to have genetic disorders and diseases and lack adequate socialization skills.

But that’s exactly where consumers will have to go to buy a dog or a cat now that pet stores can no longer sell them.
