A Crisis in Faith 

When: Sun., April 19 2015
Joshua Harmon’s savage comedy Bad Jews is all about family, faith and legacy. Young Jewish woman Diana, who prefers to be called her Hebrew name Daphna, is relentlessly fighting to obtain a religious heirloom left behind by her late grandfather. The problem is her atheist cousin Liam also wants their grandfathers gold medal, which he kept for years under his tongue at a concentration camp. When Liam misses their grandfathers funeral because he dropped his iPhone off a ski-lift in Aspen, Daphna is beyond infuriated. In the middle is Liam’s brother Jonah, who tries his best to stay out of the fray. Harmon’s debut play has received massive critical acclaim, hailed as razor-sharp smart and devastatingly funny. Bad Jews opens tonight at 8 at the Actors’ Summit in Akron, and performances continue through May 5. (Siegel)
