About Heroes of the Fourth Turning

It’s nearing midnight in Wyoming, where four young conservatives have gathered at a backyard after-party. They’ve returned home to toast their mentor Gina, newly inducted as president of a tiny Catholic college. But as their reunion spirals into spiritual chaos and clashing generational politics, it becomes less a celebration than a vicious fight to be understood. On a chilly night in the middle of America, Will Arbery’s haunting play offers grace and disarming clarity, speaking to the heart of a country at war with itself.

Please note: a gun is used onstage, and gunshots are heard offstage, during the show. Also, herbal cigarettes are used in this production.

Critic's Pick! "Astonishing and riveting. HEROES… risks a rare stage subject: Christian conservatism. A red-state unicorn.”

-Jesse Green, The New York Times

"Stunning and wildly great. HEROES… is incredibly bracing with sneaky, simple brilliance."

-Sara Holdren, New York Magazine

5 Stars. "A perfect production that left me with my heart in my mouth."

-Helen Shaw, Time Out New York
