Joshua Harmon’s acclaimed comedy asks questions about family, belief, and the
true meaning of legacy. The patriarch of a Jewish family passes away, and his
very different grandchildren, gather together to relive, share, and remember. At
odds are the annoyingly devout Daphna, a young woman who wears her
Jewishness like a righteous badge of honor, and her equally self-centered cousin
Liam, an entitled young man who has spent much of his life distancing himself
from his cultural traditions. Liam’s brother, Jonah wants to avoid confrontation,
and Liam’s shiska girlfriend, Melody just wants everyone to get along. When Liam
declares ownership over a cherished heirloom, a battle ignites of Old Testament
proportions over what their family history truly means to each of them.
“There’s nothing like a death in the family to bring out the worst in
people…THE BEST COMEDY OF THE SEASON."
- The New York Times
"Harmon has given us a gleefully funny, thought-provoking evening." -
