The New Sincerity

Begins 2/27!

Where is the line between sincerity and self-promotion? In this Chicago premiere by rising dramatist Alena Smith (Tween Hobo, The Newsroom, The Affair), a young journalist has to untangle a sticky quagmire of politics, ambition and love. In 2011, when an Occupy-style movement springs up near the offices of a literary journal, Rose, an aspiring journalist, gets swept up. But can she behave honestly in a context that may only be an unending performance? Rose's attempt to navigate her personal life in the midst of political and social upheaval is a poignant and comic drama for a rising generation.
