Bad Jews

2 Male, 2 Female

Joshua Harmon Price: $14.95

Bad Jews tells the story of Daphna Feygenbaum, a "Real Jew" with an Israeli boyfriend

The night after their grandfatherís funeral, three cousins engage in a verbal (and sometimes physical) battle

In one corner is Daphna - volatile, self-assured and unbending

In the other is her equally stubborn cousin Liam - a secular and entitled young man, who has his shiska girlfriend, Melody, in tow

Stuck in the middle is Liamís brother, Jonah, who tries to stay out of the fray

But when Liam stakes claim to their grandfather's Chai necklace, a vicious and hilarious brawl over family, faith, and legacy ensues.
