About this show

Theater Wit's Chicago premiere of Joshua Harmon's scathing new comedy about what you chose to believe, when you're a chosen one, opened on May 4th and was instantly met with sold out houses, wait lists, a few complaints about its title, but unanimous acclaim from Chicago critics. Don't miss the show on its second extension!

Bad Jews tells the story of Daphna Feygenbaum, a 20-something "Real Jew" with an Israeli boyfriend. When Daphna's cousin Liam brings home his shiksa girlfriend Melody and declares ownership of their grandfather's Chai necklace, a vicious and hilarious brawl over family, faith and legacy ensues. Stir in the identity curation of the Facebook generation and Bad Jews is easily one of the funniest, wisest, most excruciating comedies on a Chicago stage this year.
