"Bad Jews"
by Joshua Harmon
October 2 – October 25, 2015 (preview on October 1)
directed by Shana Bestock

A fierce, biting comedy about family, faith, and contemporary Jewish identity in America. The night after their grandfather’s funeral, three cousins engage in an explosive verbal (and sometimes physical) battle. In one corner is Daphna Feygenbaum, a “real Jew” who is volatile, self-assured and unbending. In the other is her equally stubborn cousin Liam, a secular and entitled young man, who has his shiksa girlfriend, Melody, in tow. When Liam stakes claim to their grandfather’s chai necklace, a vicious and hilarious brawl over faith and family legacy ensues. Nominated for three Outer Critics Circle Awards and four Lucille Lortel Awards, Bad Jews was one of the most-produced plays in the country in 2014.

“Devastatingly, acidly funny… Red meat theater, marinated in fearlessness.” – Washington Post

Featuring Ian Bond, Molli Corcoran, Anna Kasabyan and Ben Phillips.
