A Question of Fear and Hatred: One Jewish Boy London
One Jewish Boy is a theatre performance that explores key moments over a four-year relationship, told out of chronology, between a Jewish boy from North London and the woman he falls for. Written by award-winning British playwright Stephen Laughton, the play is a bittersweet comedy fuelled by anti-Semitism. The play focuses on words considered filthy, ugly and hateful that are kicked into Jesse - prompting viewers to wonder if the fear of hatred could in fact be worse than hate itself.

London debut and critical reviews
The play debuted at the Old Red Lion Theatre in London in 2018 and later transferred to London’s West End in 2020. It sparked controversy for its provocative discussions on anti-Semitism. It follows the story of Jesse, a self-described nice North London Jewish boy and his relationship with Alex, a mixed race woman from Peckham who attacks Jesse for his race and religion. Tickets to One Jewish Boy London explore the impact of an anti-Semitic attack in a relationship. Jesse is a paranoid and frightened character, feeling the power of rising prejudice in every part of his life. The drama plays out inside a clear-walled box, which resembles the couple's flat, as well as on a ledge outside the box, which stands for the outer world and its potential dangers. Viewers are invited to question what Jesse will do at the end of the play and how he will handle his breakdown and fractured sense of self.
