A seminal work of Jewish culture or an act of traitorous libel? Indecent explores the origins of the highly controversial play The God of Vengeance by Sholem Asch. We follow the path of the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it in this deeply moving play accompanied by a small
live klezmer band.
This production reunites Vogel and director Rebecca Taichman who co-created and directed the original production which had its world première production at Yale Repertory Theatre in October 2015. The play had its New York première Off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theatre in May 2016, and
transferred to Broadway in April 2017. It was nominated for the Tony Award for Best New Play and received the Tony Awards for Best Direction of a Play for Taichman and Best Lighting Design of a Play for Christopher Akerlind.
The production’s creative team includes choreography by David Dorfman, set design by Riccardo Hernandez, costume design by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Christopher Akerlind, sound design by Jonathan Everett, projection design by Tal Yarden, music by Lisa Gutkin & Aaron Halva and music direction by Merlin Shepherd.
Indecent will play at the Menier Chocolate Factory from the 13th March until the 9th May.
