MFA Writing for the Screen & Stage Alumni Production

By Will Arbery 
Directed by Joan Sergay 

It is nearing midnight in Wyoming, where four young conservatives have gathered at a backyard afterparty. They have 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. In this haunting new play, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2020, playwright Will Arbery, an alum of Northwestern’s MFA in Writing for the Screen & Stage, offers a story of grace and disarming clarity, speaking to the heart of a country at war with itself.

A talkback is scheduled Opening Night Friday, Oct. 17, immediately following the show with Northwestern Alums Will Arbery (Playwright) and Joan Sergay (Director).
