The hottest show in New York last season was the break-out comedy, Bad Jews. It is one of the most-produced new plays in America – and we're excited to bring you the Philadelphia premiere! Meet Daphna Feygenbaum, a "Real Jew" with an Israeli boyfriend that she met on Birthright. When Daphna's cousin Liam brings home his shiksa girlfriend Melody, he declares ownership of their grandfather's Chai necklace. A vicious and hilarious brawl over family, faith and legacy ensues. Bad Jews – it's about what you choose to believe when you're chosen.

Bad Jews is recommended for mature audiences – for strong language and adult themes.
