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.

"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."
