After resuming performances September 3, the European premiere of Paula Vogel’s Tony-nominated Indecent opens at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory September 13. The production first began performances in 2020 but was shuttered during previews due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The production is scheduled to play a limited engagement through November 27.
Inspired by the true events surrounding the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch’s The God of Vengeance—a play seen by some as a seminal work of Jewish culture, and by others as an act of traitorous libel—Indecent charts the history of an incendiary drama and the path of the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it.
