Following sold out runs at the Ustinov Studio in Bath and St James Theatre in London, the Theatre Royal Bath production of Joshua Harmon’s Bad Jews transfers to London’s Theatre Royal Haymarket
A beloved grandfather — and Holocaust survivor — has died, and a treasured familyheirloom with religious significance is up for grabs. But who is most deserving of it? Bossy,overbearing, fanatically religious Daphna? Her wealthy cousin Liam, who’s just returnedfrom skiing with his non-Jewish girlfriend Melody? Or Jonah, his brother, who would prefernot to get involved in the fight? A cramped Manhattan apartment becomes the setting for a viciously hilarious brawl overfamily, faith and legacy as the contenders set at each other’s throats on the night after the funeral.
Aisla Joy will play the role of Daphna, Antonia Kinlay will play Melody, Jos Slovick will play Jonah and Ilan Goodman will play Liam.
“Superb performances, under Michael Longhurst’s direction, make this a gripping production” The Observer
“Blisteringly funny...” Sunday Times
