Why watch Bad Jews?

  • If you love having a good laugh, then Bad Jews is a must-watch for you.
  • Bad Jews a dark-comedy play has made a mark in the classic Jewish family comedy genre.
  • So, if you're looking to watch a comic play about a family, this is the one for you. It's a savage and biting comedy about family, faith, and relationships.
  • The play was nominated for the Outer Critics Circle Award in 2012-2013 and the Off-Broadway Alliance Award in 2014. It received the Lucille Lortel Awards in 2014.
  • The play Bad Jews cleverly raises questions about family relationships, legacy, the morality of interfaith marriages, and cultural assimilation under the garb of comedy and it is surely a riot to watch it all unfold.

Bad Jews has returned to London Theatre after two record-breaking sessions at the West End.

The play Bad Jews by Joshua Harmon is a dark comedy. Harmon was inspired to write the play after attending a service when Holocaust survivors' grandchildren were invited to speak at the event. Jon Pashley directs the play.


The night after their grandfather's burial, three cousins have a verbal (and sometimes non-verbal!) altercation that starts out over a family heirloom but soon turns into a dispute about their faiths, interfaith romances, and even accusations about cultural assimilation fly around. In one corner of the crowded Manhattan apartment stands Daphna Feygenbaum, a feisty, self-assured, and stubborn "Real Jew”. Her cousin Liam, a secular and entitled young man who is accompanied by his sweetheart Melody (a non-Jew), is in the other corner. Liam's brother, Jonah, is caught in the middle and attempts to stay out of it. A brutal and hilarious struggle over family, faith, and legacy erupts when their beloved grandfather leaves the precious heirloom behind.
