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.
Unleash the Llama return to Edinburgh after their hit 2014 show Nougat for Kings, they are also responsible for the irreverent narrative comedy podcast: PanaMax and the sketch show TüManz 2k18 which premiered at London's Leicester Square Theatre in January 2018. Prior to this, both founders cut their teeth as members of the Cambridge Footlights. Unleash the Llama are developing a number of projects alongside Jew…ish including the one-man-show The Beast or Never Ending Guilt. Writers Saul Boyer and Poppy Damon have won awards for their writing together (Shortlisted for The RSC/Other Prize, Papatango, Cannes Series ‘In Development’ Award) and have a number of shows in development.
