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.

Quirky, Profound, Absorbing, Entertaining

See it if like Mac Wellman. Very accessible. Laughing a ridiculous situations and points of view.

Politically conscious with resonance of ionesco, but in a distinctly american voice. wonderful young cast., Relevant, Great acting, Edgy, Funny

See it if you like political theater and are prepared for some intensity amid the laughter.

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.

Edgy, Disappointing

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.

Clever, Relevant, Intelligent, Funny, Great acting

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.

"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."
