Bad Jews enjoyed its UK premiere in Bath as part of last year’s summer season, where it opened to a raft of rave reviews.
This brilliantly funny play then transferred to London’s St James Theatre where it became the best-selling play in the theatre’s history, followed by an extended run at the West End’s Arts Theatre where the packed houses continued.
The plays tells the story of a beloved grandfather, who has died, leaving a treasured family heirloom with religious significance up for grabs. But who is most deserving of it? Bossy, overbearing, fanatically religious Daphna? Liam, who’s just returned from skiing with
his non-Jewish girlfriend Melody? Or Jonah, his brother, who would prefer not to get involved in the fight?
A Manhattan apartment soon becomes the setting for a viciously hilarious brawl over family, faith and legacy as the contenders set at each other’s throats on the night after the funeral.
Tickets for five shows, including two matinees, are priced from £15-£31.50 and are available from www.theatreroyal.org.uk or by calling the box office on 01225 448844.
