The news follows the announcement that Jonathan Harvey's Beautiful Thing has cancelled its London engagement.
Bad Jews transferred from the St James Theatre opening officially at the Arts on 25 March, and was previously booking to 30 May 2015.
The comedy, directed by Michael Longhurst, has enjoyed sold out runs at the Ustinov Studio in Bath and St James Theatre, near Victoria in central London. The cast includes Jenna Augen (Daphna), Gina Bramhill (Melody), Joe Coen (Jonah) and Ilan Goodman (Liam). They will be reprising their roles from both the Ustinov Studio and St James Theatre productions.
Synopsis: "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?"
Playwright Joshua Harman's previous work has included "A Boy Named Alice", "Love in the Time of Channukah", "Princess Bubonic" and "Terese Raquin".
