HEROES OF THE FOURTH TURNING by Will Arbery, directed by Barry Carman RAN SEPTEMBER 30 – OCTOBER 20, 2021 AT BLUEBARN (OMAHA, NE)

Show Description: “It’s nearing midnight in Wyoming, where four young conservatives have gathered at a backyard after-party. They’ve returned home to toast 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 vicious fight to be understood.”
