The play originally premiered in October 2013 at the Roundabout's Black Box Theatre as part of the Roundabout Underground season before transferring to the upstairs Laura Pels Theatre.

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?

The original Bath cast, who are also in the current run at the St. James, will continue in their roles, with Jenna Augen as  Daphna (a performance for which she won the Best Supporting Performance at the UK Theatre Award 2014), Gina Bramhill as Melody, Joe Coen as Jonah and Ilan Goodman as Liam.

It is directed by Michael Longhurst, who is currently represented on Broadway by his production of Constellations, with designs by Richard Kent, lighting by Richard Howell and sound by Adrienne Quartly.

It is produced by Danny Moar and Simon Friend for Theatre Royal Bath and St. James Theatre Productions.
