Heroes of the Fourth Turning
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.
