“Bad Jews”, written by Joshua Harmon and directed by Tom Kaechele opens Thursday, February 28th and runs till Sunday, March 10th at GRCC’s Spectrum Theatre, 160 Fountain St NE in downtown Grand Rapids.
Who is holy and who is just holier-than-thou? A dark comedy that tackles the divide between cultural identity and orthodoxy.
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 cramped Manhattan apartment becomes the setting for a viciously hilarious quarrel about family, faith and legacy as the contenders set at each other’s throats on the night after the funeral.

“There’s nothing like a death in the family to bring out the worst in people. This unhappy truth is displayed with delectably savage humor in “Bad Jews,” a zesty play by Joshua Harmon...” – New York Times
