One Jewish Boy
Jun 7 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

By Stephen Laughton
Directed by Johanna Gruenhut
June 7 – July 2, 2023


In this bittersweet, sophisticated and quick-fire new British comedy about antisemitism, Jesse, a nice Jewish boy, falls in love with Alex, a nice mixed-race girl. The love between them is pure and absolute, but Jesse has never been able to shake off the vicious attack that changed him forever. Navigating any relationship is difficult enough, but what happens when you factor in politics and rising prejudice? This provocative play received a massive antisemitic response when the UK production opened in 2018; posters were defaced, and the writer received death threats. Don’t miss the US premiere of this urgent and unflinching comedy, which pits the impact of hatred against the power of love.

“Moving… shows how race, gender, class, culture, and, perhaps most importantly, fear, impact on the characters’ lives” –The Stage
“Does what good theatre should do – it begs questions and provokes thought which linger in the mind long after… provocative, urgent and powerful” –Attitude Magazine
