An essential affirmation of the resilience of the human spirit
A sensation from its 1906 premiere onward, Sholem Asch’s THE GOD OF VENGEANCE became the first play to be translated from Yiddish and professionally staged across Europe. Hailed on the continent for its rebuttal of religious hypocrisy and its honest, joyous depiction of a same-sex relationship, the play was shut down upon its Broadway debut. Following Asch’s play through the first five decades of the Twentieth Century, Pulitzer Prize-winner Paula Vogel’s celebration of love and art, featuring an onstage klezmer band, honors those who brought THE GOD OF VENGEANCE to the stage—and who paid for it, in some cases, with their lives.
HERC is honored to be collaborating with The Stahl Center for Jewish Studies at UWM, the Milwaukee Chamber Theater, and several local and national partners to present Sholem Asch’s Indecent, performing at MCT March 11-27. HERC will be part of a talkback panel following the March 17 performance. We hope to see some of you there!
