About the Show
An equally hilarious and savage look at how sometimes family can be our greatest adversary and faith our most powerful weapon against them.
The night after their grandfather’s funeral, three cousins engage in a knock-down, drag-out war over a precious family heirloom that was protected through the Holocaust. In one corner is the volatile and self-righteous “Super Jew” Daphna Feygenbaum. In the other is her entitled and proudly-secular cousin Liam, with his “shiksa” girlfriend Melody in tow. Caught in the middle is Liam’s brother, Jonah, who wants nothing more than to be left out of it. “Bad Jews” provides an irreverent take on faith in modern America.
“Bad Jews” is the second of a pair of shows about religion in NextStop’s 2017/2018 season. Its counterpoint, the musical “Godspell,” provides an uplifting and rocking rendition of the parables of love and tolerance of Jesus Christ. “Bad Jews” finishes the season in May and is the capstone to a year-long commitment by NextStop to provide different perspectives on similar topics.
Why NextStop Picked This Show
From July 2017 to June 2018, NextStop’s shows, in pairs, explore opposing and seemingly incompatible sides of big issues and ideas. Our hope is by providing a relaxed and entertaining venue for the community to gather together and be immersed in stories highlighting diverse perspectives, that we can help break down barriers which divide.
Theatre isn’t passive entertainment. When we leave the safety of our homes, interact with strangers sitting next to us, and turn off our phones, it is a powerful act of unity. Patrons of the theatre may not always agree with challenging works but do agree to consider them. In the spirit of that tradition, NextStop’s lineup of shows for July 2017 to June 2018 presents a “Point and Counterpoint” year of theatre.
