Paula Vogel's "Indecent"

The script for Paula Vogel's Tony Award-winning play Indecent comes out 11/14/2017. Email us to order your copy!

Based on real events, a provocative new drama from a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright about one of Broadway’s greatest controversies:  When Sholem Asch wrote God of Vengeance in 1907, he didn’t imagine the height of controversy the play would eventually reach. Performing at first in Yiddish and German, the play’s subject matter wasn’t deemed contentious until it was produced in English, when the American audiences were scandalized by the onstage depiction of an amorous affair between two women. Paula Vogel’s newest work traces the trajectory of the show’s success through its tour in Europe to its abrupt and explosive demise on Broadway in 1923—including the arrest of the entire production’s cast and crew.

Indecent reminds us of the power of art to tell us truths long before we are able to recognize them as such.” ― Los Angeles Times
