Pulitzer-Prize winning playwright Paula Vogel pens the extraordinary Indecent. ”We have a story to tell you… About a play. A play that changed my life” says Lemml the stage manager in Indecent. The play in question is Sholem Asch’s God of Vengeance, a once forgotten piece of Yiddish theatre. Set at a time when waves of immigrants were changing the face of America, Indecent, a play with vibrant music and dance, charts the history of an incendiary drama and the path of the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it. The play is a testament to the transformative power of art that is timelier then ever before. Seven actors and three musicians play a myriad of roles across continents and decades of time.
Zoe Farmingdale, John Flack, Katie Karel, TJ Lancaster, Judi Mann, Ben Nordstrom, and Tim Schall star. Joanne Gordon directs.
