TEENS. ANGST. THE KKK. FURBALLS.
Sincerity Forever is a comedy about a group of young residents from the fictional southern town of Hillsbottom, a place with a prominent community of Ku Klux Klan members, many of them in their teens. They hang out in their cars on serene nights with friends and crushes, and question, as teens do, absolutely everything.
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
See it if you like political theater and are prepared for some intensity amid the laughter.
Don't see it if you need a traditional narrative or have room in your heart for right-wing bigotry.
See it if You want to think about the humanity that exists in all of us, and what can happen when we allow ourselves to be corrupted.
Don't see it if You're sensitive to relevant references to the history of racism in America, in which case... You're doomed.
See it if A show that brings forth human behavior... hypocrisy, cunningness etc. Well acted and well done.
Don't see it if If you want an uplifting happy show, this is not the one. If you want a more linear play.
See it if you’d like to see a strong staging of an innovative 30-year old classic with a subject that is timelier than ever.
Don't see it if you're looking for a little mindless fun.
See it if Smart dialogue, glad to see this influentialMac Wellman work staged. That said, overly didactic and not enough pay-off to the script's turns
Don't see it if Some interesting formal devices, though the play itself seemed somewhat undercooked.
See it if You are interested in shows that explore hypocrisy, consensus trance, human fallibility - as well as writing that is challenging and poetic.
Don't see it if You are expecting a linear story or if you don't like the skewering of modern society. This show doesn't make you feel good - nor should it.
