About

"BAD JEWS is searingly funny ... a dark comedy that cuts deep and draws blood." The Boston Globe
"Uproarious ... for a good time, try BAD JEWS." WBUR
"Brilliant ... both funny and sad, this is a play about every family's relationships." Berkshire Fine Arts
"Brilliantly provocative ... BAD JEWS' blistering New England premiere is as much of a call for understanding as a coming to terms." The Jewish Advocate
"A spirited, hilarious and incisive comedy." Edge Boston

Two cousins wage war over a coveted family heirloom in this biting comedy about religion and culture. At odds are the annoyingly devout Daphna Feygenbaum, a young woman who wears her Jewishness like a righteous badge of honor, and her equally self-centered cousin Liam Haber, an entitled young man who has spent much of his life distancing himself from his cultural traditions. When the combatants are forced to spend the night in close quarters, the result is a viciously funny brawl over family, faith, and legacy.
