The Koffler Centre of the Arts presents the Toronto premiere of Joshua Harmon’s “exhilaratingly abrasive” play, Bad Jews (Daily Telegraph). After the death of their beloved grandfather, three cousins gather in a cramped Manhattan apartment to fight over a precious family heirloom, learning there is much more at stake than who gets what.

The cast of Bad Jews


Kristopher Turner


Daphna's equally stubborn cousin, who is totally secular and completely entitled.


Julia Vally


Liam's non-Jewish girlfriend, who just wants everyone to get along.


Rebecca Applebaum


A self assured, volatile, and unbending Jew who is wonderfully flawed.


Daniel Krantz


Liam's younger brother, who tries to stay out of the fray but is still caught in the middle.
