Description"Flawless... A work of singular distinction, one for which the word 'remark-able' is an understatement. Arbery is a greatly talented writer who has given us a drama as exciting and challenging--nay, daring--as any new play I've ever reviewed." --Terry Teachout, Wall Street JournalFinalist for the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
Night. Wyoming. Four young conservatives have gathered to toast the newly inducted pres-ident of their tiny Catholic college. Their reunion spirals into spiritual chaos and clashing generational politics, becoming less a celebration than a vicious fight to be understood. On a dark night, in the middle of America, Will Arbery's haunting play speaks to the heart of a country at war with itself.

"It's hard to talk about Arbery's play, in a way, because there's so much talking in it, and the voices aren't ones we hear often Off-Broadway. They are deeply religious, profoundly Catholic, proudly conservative, sometimes messianic. Arbery's plays are important explorations of lan-guage... He's showing us how language, even at its most beautiful, can destabilize a mind, a backyard, the world." --Helen Shaw, Time Out New York"An astonishing play." --Jesse Green, New York Times "A stunning play... Heroes of the Fourth Turning is so frighteningly well written, it's hard to write about. It's a rare play--lyrical and scary, brave and terribly gentle." --Sara Holdren, Vulture"The complexities of faith, politics, and personal history collide in Will Arbery's bracingly original Heroes of the Fourth Turning, throwing off enough sparks to start a forest fire... While Heroes is a work of drama, not advocacy, the play takes its characters and their ideas seriously--and then goes the extra, necessary step of forcing them to confront the personal cost, for them and for us, of living out those ideas." --Don Aucoin, Boston Globe
