HEROES OF THE FOURTH TURNING is suitable for adults and recommended for audiences 14+ due to language, violence and mature themes.
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.

“A PERFECT PRODUCTION THAT LEFT ME WITH MY HEART IN MY MOUTH [...] SHOWING US HOW LANGUAGE, EVEN AT ITS MOST BEAUTIFUL, CAN DESTABILIZE A MIND, A BACKYARD, THE WORLD."
– Time Out New York
“So frighteningly well written, it's hard to write about [...] The sneaky, simple brilliance of HEROES OF THE FOURTH TURNING is that it's not actually about its characters' talking points at all. It's about them. It's not shouting; it's listening. – Vulture
