INDECENT premiered in October 2015 at Yale Repertory Theatre. The Broadway version is being produced by Daryl Roth, Elizabeth Ireland McCann and Cody Lassen, who will present the Vineyard Theatre production in association with La Jolla Playhouse and Yale Repertory Theatre.
Created by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel and award-winning director Rebecca Taichman, INDECENT is a deeply moving play inspired by the true events surrounding the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch’s 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.
