Theater Wit Will Be Home to Bad Jews in 2015 | Playbill

News Theater Wit Will Be Home to Bad Jews in 2015 Bad Jews, Joshua Elias Harmon's comedy about family and faith, will make its midwest premiere at Chicago's Theater Wit.

The play, which was first seen in New York in 2012 as part of the Roundabout Underground Program and played Off-Broadway at Roundabout's Laura Pels Theater in 2013, will be presented in April and May of 2015.

"Nothing brings out the worst in a family like a funeral," press notes state. "Daphna is the most devout Jew in the Feygenbaum family. Just ask her. Her cousin Liam is the most deserving first-born. Just ask him. Don't ask Liam's brother Jonah anything. In this savagely funny comedy, long standing (and not-so-buried) antipathies boil up in a battle between two cousins over a treasured family heirloom. Stir in the identity curation of the Facebook generation and you get one of the funniest, wisest, most excruciating comedies you'll see this year."

The cast and creative team will be announced at a later date.

Tickets will go on sale in January 2015.

Theater Wit is located at 1229 W. Belmont Ave., Chicago. For tickets and more information, call (773) 975-8150 or visit
