“Bad Jews” A Play
February 8th, 10th, 11th, 15th, 17th, 18th, 22nd, 24th, and 25th 2018
Levin Jewish Community Center, 1937 W Cornwallis Road, Durham

The Jewish Federation of Durham-Chapel Hill and A Big Wig Production would like to invite you attend Joshua Harmon’s play “BAD JEWS.” While the title of this play may be disconcerting, Harmon’s hilarious script is a contemporary look at young Jewish adults and their various perspectives on Jewish life and legacy. Without giving too much away, the play revolves around three Jewish cousins (in their 20s) who convene in a Manhattan condo for the funeral of their “Poppy.” Poppy, a Holocaust survivor, has bequeathed an important family heirloom, and the plot revolves around which cousin will be the new owner. 

Ticket sale proceeds from the February 11th showing will go to the Holocaust Speaker's Bureau.

Tickets for this regional premiere for adults are $18.00 and for students - $10.00. Tickets can be purchased by calling Brian Yandle at A Big Wig Production (919) 753-6626.  Please subscribe to abigwigproduction.com for news, updates, volunteer opportunities, and special guests involved with "Bad Jews."
