Synopsis

Daphna Feygenbaum is a “real Jew.” Her cousin Liam is a self-described “bad Jew,” complete with a shiksa girlfriend. When the two arrive in New York for their grandfather’s funeral, they instantly lock horns in a savagely funny battle royale over a cherished family artifact. Written and developed by Joshua Harmon during his National New Play Network playwriting residency at Actor’s Express, Bad Jews returns to Atlanta following a run as the most acclaimed comedy of the past New York theatre season.
