Winner! 2010 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award
A moving car. A father and son. The father drives. The son's face is pressed against the rolled up window.

A lifetime can pass in the sixty miles between a boy's soccer practice and his father's new apartment. In this moving play about family relationships, we see just how much time and space can exist between the pleather seats of a father's used car.
"Nothing — and everything — happens in the hourlong car ride on a California highway depicted by Dan LeFranc in Sixty Miles to Silver Lake. Time marches onward (and jumps backward) in this painfully honest two-hander about the fragile relationship between a divorced dad and the son he picks up every Saturday after soccer practice and drives to his home for the weekend. But to this alienated pair, it's one endless ritual of loving and hating and hurting. —Variety

"Dan LeFranc's Sixty Miles to Silver Lake is a fresh take on the well-worn plot line: deadbeat dad and kid reconcile. The action is confined to the car ride from Denny's soccer practice to dad Ky's new house in Silver Lake,...LeFranc's dialogue flows effortlessly and draws us into a world of adulterous soccer coaches, Christian rock, young love, and home-wrecking Starbucks baristas. —Flavorpill.com

"...With Sixty Miles to Silver Lake, Dan LeFranc has vaulted his way onto my Playwrights to Watch list. Despite a spate of productions both here and across the country, he's remained under New York's theatrical radar. Hopefully this play will get him into the spotlight..." —Curtainup.com

"Dan LeFranc captures the conversational awkwardness, intimacy, and anger shared by a divorced man and his teenage son in Sixty Miles to Silver Lake, a poetic play in which bends in the road are the rule." —Backstage.com
