Due to popular demand, Theatre Royal Bath Productions, Kenny Wax and Theatre Royal Haymarket Productions are delighted to announce the return of Joshua Harmon’s Bad Jews to the West End, at London’s Theatre Royal Haymarket. The critically-acclaimed production will run from 8th February until 19th March 2016, following sell-out runs at Ustinov Studio, Bath, St James Theatre and The Arts Theatre, London.

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.

The cast features Ilan Goodman reprising his role of Liam and new cast members, Ailsa Joy as Daphna, Antonia Kinlay as Melody and Jos Slovick as Jonah.

Director Michael Longhurst’s previous productions include Nick Payne’s Constellations at The Royal Court Theatre and New York and Adam Brace’s Stovepipe. He is an Associate Director of the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton and is also a recipient of the Jerwood Director’s Award at the Young Vic (Dirty Butterfly) and a Fringe First (Guardians).
