"We have a story we want to tell you, about a play. A play that changed my life."
This Tony Award-winning musical play by Pulitzer Prize-winner Paula Vogel tells the story of a Yiddish play called "God of Vengeance," the story of a pious brothel owner and his daughter's love affair with one of the prostitutes who worked for him. Indecent imagines the story of God Of Vengeance's controversial 1923 Broadway debut, which saw the actors charged with obscenity. Some saw the play as seminal work of Jewish culture-others as an act of traitorous libel. This powerful, highly original, and deeply moving work uses an ensemble of seven and three live musicians to tell the story of the people who risked their lives for love, identity, and art.
