"Bad Jews" opens 11/2 in the Black Box Theatre; Saturday matinee added

October 20, 2017

A dark comedy about family, faith, and love!

Bad Jews tells the story of three cousins who, the night after their grandfather’s funeral, are forced to share their family’s Upper West Side apartment. In the face of a family heirloom with no designated heir, who will prove to be the most deserving and most “Jewish” owner of Poppy’s chai necklace?

Written by Joshua Harmon, directed by Julia Dunetz, and produced by Alissa Jaquin, Bad Jews runs from November 2 - 4, 2017 in the Black Box Theatre, Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts, including a newly-added matinee performance on Saturday, November 4 at 2pm. The complete performance schedule is as follows:

Thursday, November 2 at 7:30pm
Friday, November 3 at 5pm
Saturday November 4 at 2pm & 7:30pm

The Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts is located at 430 College Avenue, in the heart of Ithaca's Collegtown.
