Harmon's critically acclaimed play premiered Off-Broadway in 2013 at Roundabout's Black Box Theatre before transferring to the larger Laura Pels Theatre. It then went on to have a U.K. production on London's West End.

In the play, a beloved grandfather has died and a treasured family heirloom with religious significance is up for grabs. But who is most deserving of it? Bossy, overbearing, fanatically religious Daphna? Her wealthy cousin Liam who’s just returned from skiing with his non-Jewish girlfriend Melody? Or Jonah, his brother, who would prefer not to get involved in the fight?

Performances will play at the Gil Cates Theater at Geffen Playhouse, located at 10886 Le Conte Ave., Los Angeles. For more information visit geffenplayhouse.com.
