See it if you enjoy insightful skewering of society's "norms".
Don't see it if you don't like farce. Ideas in this play were great but it didn't totally come together for me as fully realized theater.
See it if like Mac Wellman. Very accessible. Laughing a ridiculous situations and points of view.
Don't see it if need straight-forward plays. Though if have not seen a Mac Wellman play before this is a good place to start
"Mac Wellman's skewering of America in 'BAD PENNY' and 'SINCERITY FOREVER' at Flea Theater"
"From the evidence of the 1990 'Sincerity Forever' and 1989 'Bad Penny,' Wellman is not particularly interested in plot but makes copious use of satire, poetry and symbolism to write absurdist plays which skewer hypocrisy and pretense in America."
"Feels newly relevant… Wellman's mockery is balanced with an undergirding anger. …[his] language can be entertaining.. But simultaneously too obvious and too abstruse to be judged a classic satire…the acting only intermittently rises to the level that the material demands."
"The…offbeat characters and structure are accompanied by a…sometimes bizarre blend of redneck locutions, colorfully distorted grammar, colloquial teenspeak, formal rhetoric, and…profanity. Not all of this comes across clearly…but the writing and staging…hold the attention much of the time."
