Bad Jews, a play by Joshua Harmon, is a fierce, biting comedy about family, faith, and what you choose to believe, when you’re chosen.

Bad Jews is onstage from April 20 – May 13 in Limelight Theatre’s Koger-Gamache Black Box Theatre, 11 Old Mission Avenue, in uptown St. Augustine. Free parking is available on site and street-side. For tickets go to or call the Box Office at 904.825.1164.
The night after their grandfather’s funeral, three cousins engage in a verbal (and sometimes physical) battle. In one corner is Daphna Feygenbam, a “Real Jew” who is volatile, self-assure, and unbending. In the other is her equally stubborn cousin Liam, a secular and entitled young man, who has his shiska girlfriend, Melody, in tow. Stuck in the middle is Liam’s brother, Jonah, who tries to stay out of the fray. When Liam stakes claim to their grandfather’s Chai necklace, a vicious and hilarious brawl over family, faith, and legacy ensues.
Bad Jews is directed by veteran actor and director Gregory Leute, with Bacot Wright as Assistant Director. The cast features Stephanie Santiago as Daphna, Marc Stone as Liam, Rachel Ihasz as Melody and Kameron Watson as Jonah.
