Embrace Empathy

Heroes of the Fourth Turning

by Will Arbery
Sep 30th – Oct 24th
TRUBLU Reservations Open Aug 30th. Single Tickets on Sale Sep 7th.

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.
