Collective Rage: A Play in Five Betties
by Jen Silverman

​April 27 to May 6, 2018

directed by Karen Ruch

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 is about finding yourself, making weird friends, and falling in love with someone unexpected; and about trading in high heels for boxing gloves and self-hatred for a guitar." - DCist
