Mandell Weiss Theatre
Co-created by Paula Vogel and Rebecca Taichman
Written by Paula Vogel
Directed by Rebecca Taichman
Co-production with Yale Repertory Theatre
THE PERILOUS LIFE OF A PLAY
Indecent is a world-premiere play with music inspired by the true events
surrounding the controversial 1922 Broadway debut of God of Vengeance — a work
considered by many to be a seminal work of Jewish culture, by others, a work of traitorous
libel. Alive with popular songs of the era, this deeply-moving piece charts the history of
an incendiary work, the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it, and the
evolving identity of the culturally-rich community that inspired its creation.
Paula Vogel is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of
How I Learned to Drive and The Long Christmas Ride Home.
