"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."
The cast will feature Ilan Goodman who reprises his role of 'Liam', alongside new cast members, Ailsa Joy as 'Daphna', Antonia Kinlay as 'Melody' and Jos Slovick as 'Jonah'.
The production will once again be directed by Michael Longhurst whose previous productions include Nick Payne’s 'Constellations' at The Royal Court Theatre and New York and Adam Brace’s 'Stovepipe'.
