His new studio album, I Hope I Know, produced by Jano Rix of The Wood Brothers, and a string of singles, including “We Got This,” “Spirits Moving” and a cover of Bobby Charles classic “I Must Be In A Good Place Now” further build upon this reputation.

    February 2-5 // Fri, Sat & Mon 7:30 pm; Sun 4 pm

    Beyond belief, here is a place we might meet.

    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. On a chilly night in the middle of America, Will Arbery's haunting play offers grace and disarming clarity, speaking to the heart of a country at war with itself.

    **Content warning: Heroes of the Fourth Turning contains strong language, adult themes, and loud noises. Viewer discretion advised.
