Bad Jews

Age Restriction: 14+ due to strong language

It’s a show that has made a big impression on audiences at the St James Theatre and the Arts Theatre in London, but now it returns to the capital once again as it plays at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from February 2015. The comedy, from writer Joshua Harmon, is one that looks at a particular family and the hilarity that ensues thanks to the debate over an heirloom.

The cast includes Antonia Kinlay, Ailsa Joy, Jos Slovick and Ilan Goodman all working under the direction of Michael Longhurst.

The story centres on a particular artefact in the group that has great significance thanks to their Jewish heritage. When the grandfather of the family passes away they gather in New York for the funeral and debate quickly turns to the heirloom and who is going to get their hands on it. Some are more determined in their desire to get a hold of it whilst others are a bit more reluctant to get involved.

Bad Jews originally premiered in New York back in 2012 and is one of many works from writer Joshua Harman, whose other plays include A Boy Named Alice and others. With Bad Jews he has earned acclaim and the show has proven popular on its previous appearances in the United Kingdom, naturally earning its latest place on a prestigious West End stage.

As such audiences will be happy to know that Ilan Goodman will be returning to the show following his performance in the production at the Arts Theatre. The actor has a range of credits so he brings plenty of experience to the role of Liam. His appearances have included Sex Degrees Of Separation at the Old Vic Theatre, Paper Dolls at the Tricycle Theatre and Red Light Winter at the Theatre Royal Bath, in addition to various screen roles such as Keith Furman in The Imitation Game.

Audiences will be able to catch Bad Jews when it returns to the West End for a run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from February 2016.
