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.
RUN TIME: Approx. two hours and five minutes with no intermission.
This production is intended to create conversation, one we hope you will find both worthwhile, entertaining, and challenging. At times, characters will make politically charged remarks, including discussion of homophobia, transphobia, anti-abortion rhetoric, sexual violence, and self-harm. In addition, the play contains simulated gunshots (hunting), herbal cigarette smoke, and adult language.
