Critically Acclaimed Play Puts Young Intellectual Conservatives In The Spotlight

An off Broadway play made waves last year for being about the most unlikely of subjects…young, intellectual Catholic conservatives. Set in Wyoming, Will Arbery's play Heroes of the Fourth Turning does not reject or promote right wing values.

Instead it lets the viewer interpret the meaning entirely for themselves. The play completed its run at Playwrights Horizons theater in New York last fall, but he hopes to eventually bring the play to Wyoming.

Arbery told Wyoming Public Radio's Megan Feighery that when he began writing, he couldn’t have imagined setting the play anywhere else.
