JEW…ish Returns To King's Head Theatre Photo JEW…ish Returns To King's Head Theatre
by BWW News Desk - Mar 4, 2020

Returning to King's Head Theatre by popular demand, JEWa??ish is a romcom revolving around the tempestuous and obstacle-ridden relationship of Max, who is Jewish, and TJ, who isn't. Continuing their situationship is not as easy as when they were part of the university's Polyamory Society, alongside two millennia of inherited trauma on top of two decades of millennial stereotypes, maybe there's too much of a cultural divide? Even couples counselling does not seem to help untangle them from this complex co-dependency. But they do really love each other (occasionally). As they struggle with their careers in the arts, with Max's overbearing family, and with each other, the two 'frenemies' try to navigate their differences and unwillingly make a go of it.
