INDECENT, by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel, is a deeply moving play inspired by the true events surrounding the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch’s God of Vengeance—a play seen by some as a seminal work of Jewish culture, and by others as an act of traitorous libel. INDECENT charts the history of an incendiary drama and the path of the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it.
“This powerful new drama by Paula Vogel sheds light on a time when history, Jewish culture and the depiction of lesbian love explosively intersected.” —NY Times. “…marvelous…more than just the re-telling of a long forgotten gem, INDECENT melds fact and fiction with the kind of insight and emotional depth that comes from theatre at its most poetic.” —NY1. “INDECENT ranks as a must-see for anyone who cares about the important legacy of Yiddish theater, or of theater in general. …we are indebted to Vogel and Taichman for reminding us of a brave play that fearlessly told the world there’s nothing indecent about love.” —TheaterMania.com.
