It’s August 19, 2017, on a pleasant evening in western Wyoming. More specifically it’s two days before the solar eclipse and one week after the Charlottesville riot. Four young alumni of a tiny conservative Catholic college have gathered to celebrate their former mentor and professor as she is inaugurated as the college’s president. Sitting on the back porch of Justin’s rustic home, their diverse, argumentative and illuminating wranglings over social, political and cultural issues point out just how divided four close friends can be—in a broader sense, a divided country in conflict with itself.

"HEROES OF THE FOURTH TURNING" is published by Samuel French, an imprint of Concord Theatricals. Playwrights Horizons, Inc. New York City, produced the World Premiere of "HEROES OF THE FOURTH TURNING". "HEROES OF THE FOURTH TURNING" was developed by The Cape Cod Theatre Project, Hal Brooks, Artistic Director.
