Joshua Harmon‘s comedy will return to London from the 14th July.
Casting has been announced for the revival of Michael Longhurst’s production (directed this time around by Jon Pashley), which will play at London’s Arts Theatre from the 14th July for a limited season of 11 weeks.
The cast will include Charlie Beaven as Jonah, Olivia Le Anderson as Melody, Ashley Margolis as Liam and Rosie Yadid as Daphne, with Danny Becker and Ellie Sager.
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.
Bad Jews originally premiered in New York in 2012, before heading to London for two runs. Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award-winning playwright Joshua Harmon’s other stage credits include Significant Other, Admissions, Skintight, and Ivanka: A Medea For Right Now.
The original production was directed by Michael Longhurst, designed by Richard Kent, lighting design by Richard Howell and sound design by Adrienne Quartly.
