Free tickets for those who RSVP and attend the Pre-show Panel Discussion: RSVP by emailing

Celebrate the Tony Award-nominated play “that deeply touches so much rich emotion about history and the theater, anti-Semitism, homophobia, censorship, world wars, red-baiting and, oh, yes, joyful human passion” (Newsday). Evoking the Jewish experience through traditional songs and dancing, this stirring production will leave you with a deeper appreciation for the art and experiences we often take for granted.

Pulitzer-winning playwright Paula Vogel tells the emotional true story of Sholem Asch’s groundbreaking play, The God of Vengeance, and the passionate artists who risked everything to share it. Many European productions of the provocative Yiddish story were highly successful in the early 1900s – even with a same-sex romance at its center. But when its Broadway debut was deemed “indecent,” it begged the question of who gets to decide what is considered art and what deserves to be censored. Follow the explosive tale through scandals, war and rewrites as a defiant, dedicated few refused to let it be silenced.

Join us for a topical panel discussion with academic leaders that explores the themes and issues of Indecent, followed by a performance of the play.


Speakers include:

Douglas Langworthy, DCPA's Director of New Plays

Cristina A. Bejan, Historian and Theatre Artist

Anahi Russo Garrido, Professor of Gender Studies

Carrie Colton, Professor of Theatre
