Sholem Asch’s play The God of Vengeance made a splash on Broadway in 1923, when it was shut down after six weeks of running, and all of the actors were arrested on charges of obscenity. Pulitzer-prize winning playwright Paula Vogel weaves scenes of Asch’s play with the imagined conversations of the risk-taking company that brought the script to the stage. Indecent is a riveting backstage drama filled with music, the history of Jewish theatre, and stage magic.
