Indecent is a play about a play... that is, a beautiful contemporary show about the controversial turn-of-the-century Yiddush play God of Vengeance, directed by local director, Sheila Daniels. More info can be found here: https://www.seattlerep.org/plays/1920/indecent/
Here is an excerpt from the NY Times Review:Written by Asch when he was in his 20s, “Vengeance” told the story of a bourgeois brothel owner (played by the great Yiddish theater actor Rudolph Schildkraut, here embodied by Mr. Nelis) whose daughter falls in love with one of his whores. Not only did “Vengeance” present a physical relationship between women as natural and even purifying, but it also concluded with a desecration of the Torah by Mr. Schildkraut’s character. Small wonder that the Warsaw literary circle to whom Asch first introduced his play urged him to burn it. Asch speaks of the necessity of Jews’ showing “ourselves as flawed and complex human beings.” One of his actresses in New York says: “We are the first generation that gets the chance our parents never got. To tell our stories.”
