Bad Jews

Bad Jews

June 9 - July 26, 2015
Gil Cates Theater

Written by Joshua Harmon
Directed by Matt Shakman
Featuring Ari Brand, Molly Ephraim, Lili Fuller & Raviv Ullman

"Brims with bile and belly laughs! For audiences of all stripes!"
- The Hollywood Reporter
"Riotous! Go see Bad Jews!" - Broadway World
"The humor does more than entertain ... the richness of the play is in the flamboyant vitriol of the language and dysfunctional gusto of the characters."
- Los Angeles Times

Daphna Feygenbaum swears she is the most devout Jew in her family. When her less observant cousin arrives to claim a treasured family heirloom and religious symbol, a hilarious and devastatingly funny battle of Old Testament proportions ignites. This youngest generation of Feygenbaums sharpen their wit, familial vitriol and humor making what The New York Times praises as, “the best comedy of the season!"
