Amidst rapidly increasing national polarization, four young conservatives have gathered to celebrate their mentor, 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 vicious battle to be understood. By harnessing the empathetic nature of theatrical storytelling, Heroes of the Fourth Turning (2019) creates opportunities for audiences to hold space for competing beliefs and listen to those for whom they may have the impulse to block out.

Written by Will Arbery, this thesis theater production will be directed by Anna Buchmueller ’22.
