The true story of a groundbreaking—and scandalous—Yiddish play

Reminding us of the joint power and legacy of art and culture, this American Revolutions commission by Paula Vogel returns home after acclaimed and award-winning productions across the country, including a Tony-winning run on Broadway. A spirited and revolutionary love story that celebrates Yiddish language and literature, Indecent charts the real-life controversy surrounding Sholem Asch’s play God of Vengeance and the Jewish artists who faced persecution when bringing it to Broadway in 1932. Directed by Shana Cooper (Julius Caesar, The Unfortunates), this collage of theater, music, dance and poetry is a heart-stirring affirmation of the impact of art in a time of chaos.

 

Development of Indecent was supported by grants from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust.

Indecent was produced by the Vineyard Theatre (Douglas Aibel, Artistic Director; Sarah Stern, Co-Artistic Director; Jennifer Garvey-Blackwell, Executive Director) New York City, Spring, 2016

Originally produced by Yale Repertory Theatre, New Haven, Connecticut (James Bundy, Artistic Director; Victoria Nolan, Managing Director) and La Jolla Playhouse, La Jolla, California (Christopher Ashley, Artistic Director; Michael S. Rosenberg, Managing Director)

Indecent under the then title of "The Vengeance Project" was developed, in part, at the 2013 Sundance Institute Theatre Lab at the Sundance Resort

Indecent was commissioned by Oregon Shakespeare Festival as part of American Revolutions: the United States History Cycle, and by Yale Repertory Theatre.

Inspired by The People vs. The God of Vengeance, Conceived by Rebecca Rugg and Rebecca Taichman
