The New Sincerity

by Alena Smith
JUNE 2, 3, 4 & 9, 10, 2023 


In the office of a hip literary journal, Asymptote, we meet the young, idealistic and cynical, work-a-day staff, while outside in the public park a political protest ensues. When one of the protesters intrudes on the office, emotional conundrums begin. Is it an opportunity to participate in the defining activist movement of their generation or the difference between sincere action and skillful self-promotion? Entertaining, funny, thought provoking, the play enjoins us to enter the world of young working adults trying to figure out  what matters in life, against a backdrop of turbulent political times.


Mature content & strong language.


Tickets are $20 – Available online at (with fees). Note: ON PERFORMANCE DATES ONLY, Ticketmaster is not available after 5 pm Fridays or all day Saturdays and Sunday. To avoid fees, visit the Five Flags Box Office, Locust Street entrance, M-F 10 am to 1 pm and 2 pm to 5 pm (cash or credit), or at the door one hour prior to performance (cash only), based on availability.
