Heroes of the Fourth Turning

By Will Arbery

Paperback £20.99

A fiercely intelligent play about a group of young conservative Catholics in America encountering crises of confidence in faith, country, and self.

Night. Wyoming. Four young conservatives have gathered to toast the newly inducted president of their tiny Catholic college. Their reunion spirals into spiritual chaos and clashing generational politics, becoming less a celebration than a vicious fight to be understood. On a dark night, in the middle of America, Will Arbery's haunting play speaks to the heart of a country at war with itself.

Heroes of the Fourth Turning was first staged at Playwrights Horizons, New York, in 2019. It was a finalist for the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Press Quotes

'Flawless… A work of singular distinction, one for which the word "remarkable" is an understatement. Arbery is a greatly talented writer who has given us a drama as exciting and challenging—nay, daring—as any new play I've ever reviewed'
