Two comedies and a comedy legend make up the St James Theatre’s spring programme, announced today.

Bad Jews comes to the London venue from January 15–February 28 after a sell-out run at the Ustinov Studio, Bath, earlier this year.

It earned huge critical acclaim for its hilarious script and sharp performances.

A cramped Manhattan apartment is the setting for a viciously hilarious quarrel about family, faith and legacy as relatives set at each other’s throats on the night after a funeral.

A beloved grandfather has died and a treasured family heirloom with religious significance is up for grabs.

But who is most deserving of it? Bossy, overbearing, fanatically religious Daphna? Her wealthy cousin Liam who’s just returned from skiing with his non-Jewish girlfriend Melody? Or Jonah, his brother, who would prefer not to get involved in the fight?

The original Bath cast will reprise their roles for the St. James Theatre run.

Jenna Augen plays Daphna, Gina Bramhill (Melody), Joe Coen (Jonah) and Ilan Goodman is Liam.

Ruby Wax

Comedian Ruby Wax takes her one-woman show to the theatre from March 2–14 following a sell-out tour.

Ruby’s new show is based on her bestselling book Sane New World: Taming the Mind.

William Gaminara’s The Three Lions comes up with a poser – What really happened when Prince William met Cameron in Beckham’s hotel room?

The comedy takes to the stage from March 24-May 2.

A critical success at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, it will embark on a national tour before its run at the St. James Theatre.

This hilarious new comedy offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of diplomacy in action.

It (allegedly) reveals what really went on between David Cameron, David Beckham and Prince William in a Swiss hotel the night before England’s bid to host the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

In spite of missed planes, mistaken identities, misunderstandings and sartorial challenges, they are determined to bring the beautiful game home.

Dugald Bruce-Lockhart, Tom Davey and Séan Browne will recreate their roles of David Cameron, Prince William and David Beckham, from the original run.
