“Explosive… Heroes of the Fourth Turning is demanding, lacerating, and full of our moment!” The Philadelphia Inquirer

“Perfect, left me with my heart in my mouth… this is the kind of play you know you'll need to read again someday.” —  Time Out New York

“More than a year after the riot at the U.S. Capitol, we can appreciate more fully just how prescient Will Arbery’s 2019 play was.” —  San Francisco Chronicle

WINNER! 2020 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Play! 


One week after the Charlottesville riots in 2017, four young conservatives gather in a Wyoming backyard to gossip and reminisce.

They’ve assembled to honor Gina, their mentor and the newly inaugurated president of a far-right Catholic university.

But as their celebration runs deep into the night, the reunion explodes into vicious insults, political accusations, and stunning revelations.

Hailed as “a work of singular distinction, for which the word ‘remarkable’ is, if anything, an understatement” by The Wall Street Journal, Heroes of the Fourth Turning is a daring look at the heart of a country at war with itself.
