Bad JewsThe night after their beloved grandfather's funeral, three cousins engage in a verbal (and sometimes physical) battle. Harmon wrote "This is a private fight within the family, and you're somehow intruding, which is an exciting, dangerous place for an audience to be. You're seeing something that is not meant to be seen." It is a dark comedy play where each of the characters represent contrasting yet valid entitlements to their heritage represented by a treasured Chai (pronounced 'high'), a religious medallion of their grandfather's which he had succeeded in hiding from the Nazis during the Holocaust. It is a symbol of faith, survival, undying commitment to his beloved wife and family heritage. Liam a secular young man in search of home and connection, his brother Jonah quietly trying to stay impartial but secretly declaring his own connection to his heritage, their cousin Daphna presenting herself as the more valid representative of the faith which she uses to conceal her personal identity insecurities and Melody, Liam's non Jewish girlfriend who sees herself only as she wants to. Each has issues with how to define their own faith and live it within the context of family and how this impacts on their own legacy.
