Review: HEROES OF THE FOURTH TURNING at Studio Theatre Photo Review: HEROES OF THE FOURTH TURNING at Studio Theatre
by David Friscic - Sep 29, 2022

The ‚Äúawful grace of God‚ÄĚ (from Aeschylus----prominently displayed on Robert F. Kennedy‚Äôs grave) has been a line I all too well understand as a Catholic---in the current and intellectually thrilling production of Heroes of the Fourth Turning, Aeschylus is more than apt.¬† These characters are given grace in circumstances that often resemble ‚ÄúThe Dark Night of the Soul‚ÄĚ (St. John of the Cross). The Studio Theatre is presenting a play that grabs hold of the mind and heart with a compelling dramatic throughline for all those who have thought about the role of the sacred in a secular society.
