Johnnie Fiori joins the UK Premiere of Jen Silverman's Collective Rage at Southwark Playhouse

Jan 4, 2018

Johnnie Fiori will play Betty 4 in the UK première of Jen Silverman's Collective Rage. The production opens in the Large at Southwark Playhouse on 29th January, with previews from 24th January and runs until 17 February.

Collective Rage explores the lives of five very different New York women named Betty collide at the intersection of anger, sex and theatre. As they meet, fall in love, rehearse, revel and rage, they realise that they've been stuck reading the same scripts for far too long. Strongly influenced by cabaret and female drag, this outrageous comedy exquisitely rejects shame and stereotype.
