Some description

The night after their grandfather’s funeral, three cousins engage in a verbal battle royale over a family heirloom. In one corner is “Super Jew” Daphna: volatile, self-assured, and unbending. In the other, Liam: secular, entitled, and just as stubborn. And in the middle, Liam’s brother Jonah tries to stay out of the fray and honor his grandfather’s memory on his own. A savage comedy about family, faith, and legacy.

Studio’s Subscription Series is the core of our programming, offering an uncommonly rich repertoire of provocative contemporary writing from around the world and inventive stagings of contemporary classics. 


Hilarious! Devastatingly, acidly funny... directed with a maestro's keen powers of perception by Serge Seiden.

The Washington Post

A must-see for everyone this theatre season...
outrageously funny!

Maryland Theatre Guide

Bad Jews is so over-the-top funny, so razor-sharp smart, and
so plumb-the-depths profound 
that it left me gobsmacked in utter awe.
