World premiere and extended run at Stratford East Autumn of 2014.

More about the production, cast, and crew after the jump:

Based on David Baddiel’s smash hit movie of the same name, this hilarious and heart-warming tale is the ultimate identity crisis comedy.

East End Muslim Mahmoud is an ordinary family man whose life is turned upside down when he discovers that not only is he adopted, but that his birth parents are Jewish. The resulting cultural and religious chaos leads to an uproarious and insightful comedy about race, prejudice, confusion and what it really means to be yourself.

Featuring book and lyrics by David Baddiel and music by Erran Baron Cohen (composer for Borat, Bruno and The Dictator), and additional material by Arvind Ethan David, this edgy new musical is packed full of great new songs including I’m a Jew, Sexy Burka, and Put a Fatwa on it.
