“The best comedy of the season” -NY Times

WE THE PEOPLE…ARE TRYING TO KEEP THE FAITH

The night after their grandfather’s funeral, three cousins engage in a verbal (and sometimes physical) battle. In one corner is Daphna Feygenbaum, a “Real Jew” who is volatile, self-assured, and unbending. In the other corner is her equally stubborn cousin Liam, a secular and entitled young man, with his ‘shiksa’ girlfriend, Melody, in tow. Stuck in the middle is Liam’s brother, Jonah, who tries to stay out of the fray. When Liam stakes claim to their grandfather’s Chai necklace, a vicious and hilarious brawl over family, faith, and legacy ensues in this biting comedy.
