Joshua Harmon’s Bad Jews to return to West End this summer

Joshua Harmon’s dark comedy Bad Jews is to return to the West End for its tenth anniversary.

The play first premiered Off-Broadway in 2012 before runs in the West End in 2015.

The piece will return for a new run in London at the Arts Theatre from 14 July to 25 September 2022.

Daphna Feygenbaum is a “real Jew” with an Israeli boyfriend to prove it. When her cousin Liam brings home his non-Jewish girlfriend Melody, and declares ownership of their grandfather’s necklace, it sparks a viciously hilarious brawl over family, faith and legacy.

Making up the cast are Charlie Beaven as Jonah, Olivia Le Anderson as Melody, Ashley Margolis as Liam and Rosie Yadid as Daphne. Completing the company are Danny Becker and Ellie Sager.

The revival production is Jon Pashley. The original production was directed by Michael Longhurst, designed by Richard Kent, lighting design by Richard Howell and sound design by Adrienne Quartly.
