Description

'We can't stay together, you thought the Gaza Strip was a burlesque act!' Jew...ish is a pitch-black, romantic comedy about true love, politics, and two millennia of inherited trauma. TJ and Max are in love; with amphetamines, the Palestine Liberation Organisation and ooh, Jeremy Corbyn. Occasionally even each other. There's just one thing: Max is Jewish. TJ isn't. He's desperate to escape the tribe; she's looking to sign up. The twisted millennial romcom that absolutely no one asked for.

Loved the energy. Laugh out loud fun, whilst we follow these two as they attempt to bridge boundaries - of which religion is not the only one. Not surprised it is selling out - needs bigger venue. 5/5

I saw Jew...ish yesterday and I laughed NON-STOP. The script is electric and performed fantastically by the actors. Fast-paced and energetic, the show is littered with witty humour, which makes the vulnerable moments more impactful. Great script, great actors, GREAT show! Thank you!!

Sorry guys. Saw this 14 August and imho just not good enough. Not polished and not funny. Couldn’t see the point. Don’t like to put artists down but this didn’t do it. At all.

Jew…ish is Fringe as it’s meant to be. Not polished to death, not bland, safe or inoffensive, but clean in execution, f*cking fun and a genuinely good piece of theatre. So many things can go wrong with a small production like Jew…ish, but the script is baby-butt tight and the performers are phenomenal. By far the best independent piece I saw at the Fringe this year. It seems to be selling out regularly as well, so you might have to take a trip to London if you miss it in Scotland.

5 + stars. This energetic and hilarious duo brought out everything that is stereotypically Jewish and made it a real celebration. Fantastic script, perfectly captured emotions and full of laughs. I came out wanting to hug every Jew in my path!

Jewish Renaissance (4/5 stars) 58 days ago

It's a fabulously vibrant, unflinching send-up of our tribe that revels in the dark corners of middle-class British Judaism and has you in its grip right until the end.

Edinburgh Festivals Magazine (4/5 stars) 61 days ago

This is a situational comedy with genuine brilliance. North London’s secular Jewish world of synagogues, weddings, therapists and religious justifications for drinking is portrayed in a profound, hilarious, and gripping way. As are the tribulations of being a struggling actor and thirty-something.

Broadway Baby (3/5 stars) 66 days ago

Saul Boyer explodes on stage, a blast of energy and vigorous vocals, as he delights us with a punchy song about being a Jew. "I’ve got neuroses, I put it down to Moses", Boyer sings which, accompanied by a dynamic dance, works the room into a frenzy.Boyer and co-writer/star Poppy...
