Bad Jews description

Bad Jews – Outrageously funny

There’s something about Bad Jews that keeps audiences howling with laughter. It has already played two sold out runs in the West End, now it’s back for another, this time at the Arts Theatre, the perfect venue for a rebellious production like this. How come? Back in the 1920s the theatre started life as a private members club, created to avoid the strict government theatre censorship of the time.

What's the plot of Bad Jews?

Daphna Feygenbaum is a ‘real’ Jew, a proper Jew with all the correct credentials. She even has a genuine Israeli boyfriend. Her cousin Liam introduces his new non-Jewish girlfriend to the family, and claims a piece of family jewellery as his own. The fun begins with a vicious brawl and the arguments continue. The result is sheer hilarity. Described as ‘blisteringly funny’ and ‘ferociously clever’ by the newspapers, the plot focuses on the meaning of family, legacy, and the beliefs people choose to adopt.

This production, a revival of the hugely popular original, will be directed by Jon Pashley. Bad Jews is presented by Simon Friend, Gavin Kalin, and Keren Misgav. Bad Jews playwright Joshua Harmon is also the creator of Significant Other, Admissions, Skintight, and Ivanka: A Medea For Right Now. The original production of Bad Jews was directed by Michael Longhurst. The original design was by Richard Kent, lighting design by Richard Howell and sound design by Adrienne Quartly. This production reprises the original, this time directed by Jon Pashley.

Funny, poignant, loud

Fine acting from just 4 people in the play, most on stage the whole time

Comically Serious- A must see

Although centered around the Jewish sect, 'Bad Jews' raises serious questions around faith, family conflicts and values relevant to all, no matter your race or religion. Having lost their grandfather, the show cleverly takes you on a journey of discovering how each of the cousins deal with their religion and grief through the use of humor, witty comments and sensational acting. No interval means the intensity of the play is not disrupted.
