Cast includes Ilan Goodman, Ailsa Joy, Antonia Kinlay, and Jos Slovick A beloved grandfather — and Holocaust survivor — 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? A cramped Manhattan apartment becomes the setting for a viciously hilarious brawl over family, faith and legacy as the contenders set at each other’s throats on the night after the funeral.

Our Review

"Joshua Harmon’s play uses sharp comedy to probe the sort of questions of identity that usually get treated with dry solemnity. It takes a while to come to the boil, and some scenes are too drawn out — notably one in which Melody murders the song Summertime."
Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard
