Bad Jews enjoyed its UK premiere in Bath in 2014, where it opened to a raft of superlative reviews before 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 and rave reviews continued. Now this phenomenal hit play is coming to Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre. Don’t miss the chance to experience a night like no other...
A beloved grandfather has died, and a treasured family heirloom 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 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 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.
