"PACKED WITH LAUGHTER!" Shari Barrett, Culver City News

It’s the world premiere of acclaimed playwright Jerry Mayer’s 11th play, a serious, no BS comedy for our times.

Jewish Stanley and Catholic Kathy meet, fall in love, and get ready to present their upcoming nuptials to the family. Little do they know that their fathers, Jewish Marvin and Catholic Chris, once boyhood besties, are now bitterest enemies. Will Stanley and Kathy make it to the altar with blessings or curses? A match made in heaven or in hell?

"A hilarious laugh-filled comedy. Funny, poignant and clever! RECOMMENDED for all ages!” Elaine Mura, LASPLASH

As they say, “Hope for the best, plan for the worst, and pray that the law of averages is on your side when the schmutz hits the fan.” Interfaith lovers, in-your-face fathers, what could possibly go wrong?

"Jerry Mayer is one of the funniest writers alive!" The Good Life

91-year-old playwright Jerry Mayer, who has written for M*A*S*H, The Bob Newhart Show, All in the Family, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Facts of Life (where he was executive producer), five of Mitzi Gaynor’s TV Specials, and award-winning plays like Almost Perfect, Aspirin & ELEPHANTS, 2 Across, A Love Affair and more, never shies away from tackling the big issues and JEWS R 2 MUCH FUN is no exception.

"Chris DeCarlo is a masterful director!" Theatre Scene

Chris DeCarlo, Playhouse Co-Artistic Director, who has helmed 10 of Mayer’s world premiere comedies, says, "Jerry Mayer's plays are a joy for a director, a cast and of course, an audience/ Experiencing a Jerry Mayer play brings us that much closer to the realization that turning the frown upside down is the best way to navigate through life’s most serious issues, big or small. The Santa Monica Playhouse Jewish Heritage series is proud to present the world premiere of Jerry’s newest play, a serious comedy about one of the ugliest issues imaginable.”
