Outhouse Theatre Co and Seymour Centre present

Heroes of the Fourth Turning

31 Mar - 23 Apr 2022

Past Event

Following their smash hit, Ulster American, Outhouse Theatre Co presents the Sydney premiere of a bold and startling new play—the Pulitzer Prize finalist, Heroes of the Fourth Turning.

You won't have seen a play like it—a disarming lens on conservative Catholicism and its disciples during the Trump era.  

It's nearing midnight in Wyoming, where four young college alumni gather at a backyard after-party. They've returned to celebrate their mentor, Gina, newly inducted as president of a small Catholic college. But as spiritual chaos descends, the celebrations unravel to reveal the divisions fracturing their beliefs, their country and themselves.

At a time when tribal lines between 'us' and 'them' are fiercely drawn, Will Arbery's haunting play, Heroes of the Fourth Turning, offers grace, insight and understanding—and a timely reminder of theatre's power to provoke, stimulate and confront.
