Why See Indecent?
The Tony-Winning Play Comes To London
Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel's latest incendiary work lit up the Great White Way in 2017, winning two Tonys for its incredible elegy to another landmark work of modern drama. Directed by respected theatremaker Rebecca Taichman, who led the original Broadway production to critical acclaim, the thought-provoking play now enjoys a West End run at the Menier Chocolate Factory this spring.
Chronicling the controversy surrounding Polish-Jewish dramatist Sholem Asch's 1923 Broadway play God of Vengeance, Indecent presents a fascinating history of the piece, right from its inception in Warsaw in the early 1900s to the World War II era, when it was performed as an act of artistic resistance in German-occupied Poland. Told through the eyes of Asch and the play's performers, it uses masterful storytelling to highlight the still topical themes of homophobia and xenophobia with stunning results.
