Betty is rich. Betty is lonely. Betty’s a dutiful wife, but Betty’s busy working on her truck. Betty wants to talk about love, and Betty wants Betty, but Betty needs to hit something. And Betty keeps using a small hand mirror to stare into parts of herself she s never examined. Meanwhile, Betty decides to stage a production of that play-within-a-play from what’s it called? Summer’s Midnight Dream?
In Collective Rage, five different women named Betty collide at the intersection of anger, sex, and the thea-tah. Award-winning playwright Jen Silverman’s absurdist romantic comedy is at once hysterical, inspired, and boldly uncompromising. When you’re done laughing, you’ll be ready to deliver a knockout blow to a thousand different well-worn tropes about female identity and dare them all to say Boop.
Collective Rage begins September 12, with Pay What You Can performances September 12 and 13. Tickets $20 for 30 and under, all other tickets available here.
