Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel and Rebecca Taichman’s deeply moving new play with music is inspired by the true events surrounding the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch’s The 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.
Indecent was commissioned by Yale Rep and American Revolutions: The United States History Cycle at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.
Indecent is the recipient of a 2015 Edgerton Foundation
New American Plays Award.
