Outhouse Theatre Co and Seymour Centre present

Heroes of the Fourth Turning

21 Oct - 6 Nov 2021

Following their smash hit, Ulster American, 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. With humanity, complexity and genuine insight, Heroes of the Fourth Turning excavates the schism between old-guard conservatives and new Trumpist identity politics.

It's nearing midnight in Wyoming, where four young conservatives have gathered at a backyard after-party. They've returned home to celebrate their mentor, Gina, newly inducted as president of a tiny 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.
