NEW YORK, NY – Theatre Communications Group (TCG) has announced the publication of Indecent by Paula Vogel. The play received its world premiere in the fall of 2015 in a co-production of Yale Repertory Theatre and La Jolla Playhouse. Indecent had its New York premiere at the Vineyard Theatre in April 2016, and later opened on Broadway in April 2017 to critical acclaim, receiving three nominations for the 71st Annual Tony Awards in 2017 and winning two, including Best Direction of a Play.
When Sholem Asch wrote God of Vengeance in 1907, he didn’t imagine the height of controversy the play would eventually reach. Performing at first in Yiddish and German, the play’s subject matter wasn’t deemed contentious until it was produced in English, when the American audiences were scandalized by the onstage depiction of an amorous affair between two women. Paula Vogel’s newest work traces the trajectory of the show’s success through its tour in Europe to its abrupt and explosive demise on Broadway in 1923—including the arrest of the entire production’s cast and crew.
Paula Vogel is the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of How I Learned to Drive. Her other plays include Don Juan Comes Home from Iraq, A Civil War Christmas, The Long Christmas Ride Home, and The Baltimore Waltz, among others. She has also had a distinguished career as a teacher and mentor to younger playwrights, first at Brown University and then at the Yale School of Drama.
