Story

for Bad Jews

 Bad Jews is the story of Daphna Feygenbaum, a “Real Jew” with an Israeli boyfriend she met on Birthright. 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.

Reviews

for Bad Jews

'Bad Jews' is delicious, nasty fun, especially in Tracee Chimo’s expert hands. Her Daphna stares at her opponents with such calculating intensity, you can almost see her brain whirring.

Review by Elisabeth Vincentelli from The New York Post

[Daphna] is a monster of many unlovely parts, all minutely examined and bravely presented in a fierce perf from Tracee Chimo.

Review by Marilyn Stasio from Variety

Ultimately, it’s a stunningly knowing work that sent me out of the theater on a cloud of pure exhilaration.

Review by Erik Haagensen from Backstage

...for most of its 100-minute running time, 'Bad Jews' seasons the fierce battle between Daphna and Liam with enough sharp humor and smart writing to keep us engaged in their fight for moral supremacy.

Review by Charles Isherwood from The New York Times
