About the Show

Part of the 2019 Corkscrew Festival, "Collective Noun" is a love letter to an unsung history of collective action and a battle cry for radically re-envisioning what it means to fight for change.

Profound, Relevant, Intelligent, Great acting, Great writing

See it if You’ve got an anarchist in you just dying to get out, or if you’re struggling for words to help you make sense of these emotional times.

Don't see it if You support that aged orange hunk of profanity in the White House right now or if you’re offended by the idea that you might be the problem. Read more

Indulgent, Disappointing, Confusing, Cliched, Banal

See it if A show about politics and social injustice. A wordy play that goes nowhere.

Don't see it if A wordy lecture about politics. A direction that is all over the place. A play that preaches rather than a play.

Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Relevant, Slow, Ambitious

See it if you are willing to bear the first 20 minutes that are a bit confusing and loaded with too much sound track, but then it turns to importance.

Don't see it if you cannot sit for a long period without an intermission, do not like the action around you or are impatient for the story to come forward.

Engaged, Smart, Political, Messy, Rich

See it if you want to see a young adult generation engaging today’s crucial issues, & be entertained while doing it.

Don't see it if you are looking for a traditional play or feel that theater & politics shouldn’t mix. Read more

Wordy, Dizzying, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Quirky

See it if you like plays written from a young female perspective and can handle "issue overload".

Don't see it if exploration of current issues doesn't interest you or you have trouble following speedily recited monologues. Read more

Excruciating, Disappointing, Confusing, Cliched

See it if As much as I wanted to enjoy this corkscrew theater Festival production with its young actors and playwrights unfortunately I did not.

Don't see it if Although the actors weren't bad this play was tedious boring and was way too long I noticed a few people leaving for the exits early.. Read more

Intense, Indulgent, Intelligent, Disappointing

See it if It's something of a celebration of people fighting to change the system. But it's very much preaching to the choir.

Don't see it if It feels like a college lecture much of the time, and not in a good way. I thought I should be taking notes. The characters are clichés.

Ambitious, Edgy, Thought-provoking

See it if You like thought provoking plays. It seems they have some good talking points about politics, min wage, but purely arguments, no solutions.

Don't see it if You are easily aggravated by people beating around the bushes. Strong performance but weak arguments.No actionable solutions, felt pointless Read more
