Indecent is a 2015 play by Paula Vogel. It recounts the controversy surrounding the play God of Vengeance by Sholem Asch, which was produced on Broadway in 1923, and for which the producer and cast were arrested and convicted on the grounds of obscenity. Asch’s play ignited a conflagration of passion among artists and audiences, shattering societal norms and artistic confines. With eloquence, Vogel’s script weaves a rich tapestry of history, embracing themes of love, tradition, censorship, religious hypocrisy, and the unwavering quest for truth. A live klezmer band will accompany the performance.
On December 2nd, in conjunction with the University of Alberta Studio Theatre and Edmonton’s Reform Jewish congregation Temple Beth Ora, this special performance and gala event will include a post-show celebration with live Klezmer music and archival music from Moses Asch (Folkways Records now in the Smithsonian), dessert, and a special silent auction to benefit Temple Beth Ora.
