It’s quite a title—Bad Jews. US playwright Joshua Harmon came up with it for his comedy, featuring a cast of four, set in a Manhattan apartment.
Harmon feared at first the title might be problematic, provocative, and possibly an issue for theatre companies and audiences. But, he was wrong.
Since Bad Jews first hit the stage in New York in 2012 , it’s become one of the most produced plays in the United States. It’s also a hit in Britain, and it sold out to audiences in Melbourne last year.
Bad Jews has now returned to Melbourne, before heading to Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.
Two of the cast members, Maria Angelico and Anna Burgess, joined Fran Kelly on RN Breakfast.
