Bad Jews

Maryland Ensemble Theatre
Frederick, MD

A fierce, biting comedy about family, faith and what you choose to believe when you’re chosen. The night after their grandfather’s funeral, three cousins engage in an explosive battle that shows there is nothing like a death in the family to bring out the worst in people. In one corner is Daphna Feygenbaum, a “Real Jew” who is volatile, self-assured, and unbending. In the other is her equally stubborn cousin Liam, a secular young man with his shiksa girlfriend in tow. When a claim is staked to their grandfather’s chai necklace, a vicious and hilarious brawl over faith and family legacy ensues.

When Chester’s (a cat) and Harold’s (a dog) owners return home, they bring a surprise: they’ve found a bunny named Bunnicula in the movie theater. When the family’s produce starts losing its juice, Chester thinks that Bunnicula is a vampire! Or maybe Chester’s imagination is getting the better of him. Singing and dancing their way through this hilarious mystery, the furry friends find room in their hearts, and in their home, for one very unique bunny.
