From the author of Admissions (Gamm 2020), a deliciously savage comedy about family, faith and the complications of identity. A beloved grandfather and Holocaust survivor has died, leaving a treasured heirloom with religious significance up for grabs. But who should get it? Volatile, self-described “Super Jew” Daphna, who plans to move to Israel after college; or her wealthy, self-absorbed cousin Liam, an ethnic studies grad student with a secular worldview and a shiksa girlfriend? Then there’s Jonah, Liam’s younger brother, forced to play peacemaker as the rivals argue, insult, and try to outwit each other to the play’s bitter, hilarious end.

 

“Delicious, nasty fun…. Equal parts brains and brawl, Joshua Harmon's play isn't a textbook comedy of hostility, but a smart, divisive conversation starter.” New York Post

 

“A radioactive brew of neuroses and glee for audiences of all stripes.”  Los Angeles Times
