MACo Presents: Heroes of the Fourth Turning
“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

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.
“Astonishing and riveting. Heroes risks a rare stage subject: Christian conservatism. A red-state unicorn.” — The New York Times
