Heroes Of The Fourth Turning by Will Arbery Directed by Michael Stevenson Sacramento Premiere 2020 Pulitzer Prize Finalist Obie, New York Drama Critics Circle, Lucille Lortel Awards Winner March 15 – April 16, 2023 Days after the white-supremacist riot in Charlottesville, four old friends gather for a reunion at their conservative Catholic alma mater in Wyoming.

As the party stretches late into the night, they grapple with their beliefs and their place in the world. The reunion becomes less a celebration than a vicious fight that spirals into clashing politics and spiritual chaos. 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. CRITIC’S PICK! “Astonishing and riveting. Heroes risks a rare stage subject: Christian conservatism. A red-state unicorn.” – THE NEW YORK TIMES
