synopsis

Heralded by The New York Times as “a full-tilt lesbian/bi-curious/genderqueer/Shakespearean comedy for everyone,” Collective Rage follows five different women named Betty as they collide at the intersection of anger, sex, and the “Thea-Tah.” Betty is rich; Betty is lonely; Betty’s busy working on her truck; Betty wants to talk about love, but Betty needs to hit something; and Betty keeps using a small hand mirror to stare into parts of herself she’s never examined. Award-winning playwright, Jen Silverman’s absurdist dark comedy is simultaneously hilarious, inspired and boldly unapologetic. Are you ready for the revolution?

Please note that Collective Rage: A Play in 5 Betties explores mature themes, contains adult language, partial nudity, sexual content and simulated violence. Collective Rage: A Play in 5 Betties may not be suitable for patrons under the age of 18.

critical acclaim

Critic’s Pick! “A full-tilt lesbian/bi-curious/genderqueer/Shakespearean comedy for everyone […] If you’re wondering whether you’ll enjoy the revolution, Collective Rage makes an excellent (and hilarious) test case.” - The New York Times

“Anger, love, and loneliness are comedically but honestly rendered in this occasionally absurd, stylized, queer-centric play […] With hilarity and poignancy, Collective Rage offers a broad spectrum of queer voices rarely seen on stage.” - Variety
