Collective Rage: A Play in Five Betties (Oberon Modern Plays) (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
'Everybody just stared at them and loved them and wanted to be them - but nobody was.' 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. Meanwhile, Betty decides to stage a production of that play-within-a-play from...what's it called again? Summer's Midnight Dream? Hitting the ring with an electrifying soundtrack, looks to kill and spectacular routines, Collective Rage is an outrageous comedy that packs the punch to shatter lacquered femininity into a thousand glittering pieces. Strongly influenced by cabaret and female drag, this exquisite rejection of shame and stereotype will punch you in the gut, break your heart and then take you dancing.
