COLLECTIVE RAGE: A PLAY IN 5 BETTIES; IN ESSENCE, A QUEER AND
OCCASIONALLY HAZARDOUS EXPLORATION; DO YOU REMEMBER
WHEN YOU WERE IN MIDDLE SCHOOL AND YOU READ ABOUT
SHACKLETON AND HOW HE EXPLORED THE ANTARCTIC?; IMAGINE
THE ANTARCTIC AS A PUSSY AND IT’S SORT OF LIKE THAT

By Jen Silverman


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. Five different women named Betty collide at the intersection of anger, sex, and the “Thea-Tah.”

COLLECTIVE RAGE: A PLAY IN FIVE BETTIES was developed and World
Premiered in September 2016 at Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company,
Washington, DC
(Howard Shalwitz, Artistic Director and Meghan Pressman, Managing Director).
