Bad Jews


by Joshua Harmon

Feb 16 – Mar 5

Three young Jewish adults – Daphna and her two cousins: brothers Jona and Liam; along with Melody – Liam’s non-Jewish girlfriend – find themselves together in the aftermath of the grandfather’s funeral. A vicious and hilarious brawl over family, faith and legacy ensues. This is a play that probes deeply – yet humourously – into our need to be both embraced by, and acknowledged as distinct within, the community with which we choose to align ourselves: be it based in faith, kinship, or friendship. The dialogue is blistering and riveting as each character strives to attain this balance.
