Directed by Tony Estrella, the play, written by the author of Admissions (Gamm 2020), is a deliciously savage comedy about family, faith and the complications of identity.

Vying for the inheritance is  Volatile, self-described “Super Jew” Daphna, who plans to move to Israel after college; or her wealthy, self-absorbed cousin Liam, an ethnic studies grad student with a secular worldview and a shiksa girlfriend? Then there’s Jonah, Liam’s younger brother, forced to play peacemaker as the rivals argue, insult, and try to outwit each other to the play’s bitter, hilarious end.

In addition to Estrella, the production draws on the talents of:

Set Designer  Patrick Lynch

Costume Designer  Jessie Darrell Jarbadan

Lighting Designer  David Roy

Sound Designer  Peter Sasha Hurowitz
