When Sholem Asch wrote “God of Vengeance” in 1907, he didn’t imagine the height of controversy the play would eventually reach. Performing at first in Yiddish and German, the play’s subject matter wasn’t deemed contentious until it was produced in English in 1923 when the American audiences were scandalized by the onstage depiction of an amorous affair between two women. Paula Vogel’s brilliant “Indecent” traces the trajectory of the show’s success through its tour in Europe to its abrupt and explosive demise on Broadway —including the arrest of the entire production’s cast and crew. “God of Vengeance” set the stage for an explosive moment in theatrical history. The evocative work of Jewish culture was praised and criticized for taboo themes of censorship, immigration, and anti-Semitism. Inspired by these true events and the controversy, this important play tells the behind-the-scenes story of the courageous artists who risked their careers and lives to perform a work deemed “indecent”. It is a testament to the transformative power of art that is timelier than ever before.
