★★★★★. Brave, articulate, moving and necessary new play.”New York Stage Review 

“Ambitious and maddening, thought-provoking and schematic.’’ – The New York Times

“Such a richly dense and emotionally engaging piece of drama.” – New York Theatre Guide


“Future generations will study Joshua Harmon’s works the way we do Mordecai Richler and Leonard Cohen for his white hot commentary on contemporary Jewish lives. If you loved Bad Jews, this play is a must-see!”
