Bad Jews transferring to Theatre Royal Haymarket

It has been announced that Bad Jews is returning to the West End for a second season.

Joshua Harmon's play will open at the Theatre Royal Haymarket on 8th February for a limited run to 19th March 2016.

Bad Jews previously ran at the West End's Arts Theatre following seasons at the Ustinov Studio in Bath and St James Theatre as well as a UK tour.

Ilan Goodman (pictured) will reprise his performance as Liam alongside Ailsa Joy as Daphna, Antonia Kinlay as Melody and Jos Slovick as Jonah. Michael Longhurst directs.

A beloved grandfather — and Holocaust survivor — 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 brawl over family, faith and legacy as the contenders set at each other’s throats on the night after the funeral.
