Bad Jews: the play putting noses out of joint this month

The story follows a family squabbling over a family heirloom with religious significance, after the death of a grandparent.

But who is most deserving of it? Bossy, overbearing, fanatically religious Daphna (Jenna Augen? Her wealthy cousin Liam (Ilan Goodman) who's just returned from skiing? Or Jonah (Joe Coen), his brother, who would prefer not to get involved in the fight?

The comic play has the unusual setting of a meet up after a funeral, where this family, instead of mourning, set at each others throats.

This show, despite the potentially shocking title, is one that focuses on the best, worst and hilarious elements of jewish life. 

Bad Jews was a sell out at the Ustinov Studio in Bath earlier this year, where it earned huge critical acclaim for its script and sharp performances, and now it comes to London.

You can catch Bad Jews at the St James Theatre, running until February 28.
