The cast consists of 2 MALE ROLES and 2 FEMALE
*DAPHNA FEYGENBAUM: 20s, female, Jewish. Liam &
Jonah's first cousin. 2/3 body, 1/3 hair. Daphna
is very connected to her Jewish heritage. She is
highly opinionated and easily lets her
defensiveness turn into aggression towards her
opponents. Subtlety is not in her nature.
*LIAM HABER: 20s, male, Jewish. Daphna's cousin.
Attractive, put-together young professional on a
trajectory for success. Former Fulbright scholar.
Absolutely no sense of humor. Clearly lost his
tolerance for Daphna a long time ago and isn't
discreet about the way he feels.
*JONAH HABER: 20s, male, Jewish. Liam's younger
brother. Sometime-college sophomore. Just a
regular guy. Less brainy. More heart. Sensitive.
Doesn't always speak up but when he does, it makes
a strong impact. Caught in the middle.
*MELODY: 20s, female, very clearly not Jewish.
Liam's girlfriend. Quite pretty and blonde. Dreams
of being an opera singer but is unaware that she
has a terrible voice. A peacemaker with a positive
outlook on life.
About BAD JEWS
Described as a comedy about the holy and the
holier-than-thou, Bad Jews is the story of Daphna
Feygenbaum, a "Real Jew" with an Israeli boyfriend
she met on a Birthright tour. When Daphna's cousin
Liam brings home his shiksa girlfriend Melody and
declares ownership of their grandfather's Chai
necklace, a vicious and hilarious brawl over
family, faith, and legacy ensues. Bad Jews makes
it regional premiere at the BLUEBARN Theatre.
