Heroes of the Fourth Turning
By Will Arbery
Directed by Craig Baldwin
Outhouse presents a bold Sydney premiere of the play that had New York theatre buzzing—Will Arbery’s Pulitzer Prize finalist, Heroes of the Fourth Turning.
You won’t have seen a play like it—an authentic and disarming window into American Catholic right-wing conservatives.
It's nearing midnight in Wyoming, where four young conservatives have gathered at a backyard after-party to celebrate their mentor, Gina, newly inducted as president of a Catholic college. But as their reunion spirals into spiritual chaos and clashing generational politics, it becomes less a celebration than a desperate fight to be understood.
On a chilly night in the middle of America, Will Arbery's haunting play offers grace and clarity, speaking to the heart of a country at war with itself.
