Stephan Nieman's MFA Directing Thesis Project, A True Story of a Little Jewish Play

About the Show

Indecent is a 2015 play by Paula Vogel. It recounts the controversy surrounding the play God of Vengeance by Sholem Asch, produced on Broadway in 1923. and for which the producer and cast were arrested and convicted on the grounds of obscenity. This powerful play asks crucial questions about Jewish life from 1910 to 1950.

This play will be performed at Jw3, the Jewish community center in London. We are excited to bring such an influential play to the Jewish community.
