Aleksandar Vass and Vass Theatre Group are excited to announce the Broadway and West End hit Bad Jews will have its Brisbane premiere at QPAC in July.
Due to popular demand, the critically acclaimed, all-Australian production, Bad Jews will play a return season in Melbourne before seasons in Sydney, Brisbane and then touring to Perth.
The story follows the Feygenbaum family, after the death of their beloved grandfather. A treasured family heirloom with religious significance is up for grabs, but who in the family is most deserving of it?
Bossy, overbearing, fanatically religious Daphna, who swears she is the most devout Jew in her family? Her wealthy, less observant cousin Liam, who’s just returned from skiing with his non-Jewish girlfriend, Melody? Or Jonah, Liam’s brother, who would prefer not to get involved in the fight?
A cramped Manhattan apartment becomes the setting for a viciously hilarious quarrel about family, faith and legacy as the contenders set at each other’s throats on the night after the funeral.
Directed by Gary Abrahams, Bad Jews features a tremendously talented Australian cast. Starring as the domineering Daphna is Maria Angelico (Danny and the Deep Blue Sea, Under a Red Moon, Hating Alison Ashley, Wentworth, Rush, City Homicide, We Can Be Heroes). Simon Corfield (Packed to the Rafters, COPS, Crownies, The Birth of Creation, Songs for the Fallen) as Liam while his ‘shiksa’ girlfriend, Melody, is played by Anna Burgess (39 Steps, God of Carnage, Goodbye Miss Monroe, The Producers, Waiting for Godot, Neighbours, Last Man Standing, Thank God You’re Here). Matt Whitty (Foxfinder, About Tommy, Penelope) plays Jonah.
