Indecent

Paula Vogel

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

Indecent brings to life the haunting legacy of Jewish life at the beginning of the 20th century, confronting its pain, complexity and beauty.

The play follows the true story a Polish-Jewish writer called Sholom Asch (1880-1957) and his first play, The God of Vengeance (1906). Asch’s play was written in Yiddish and tells the story of a Jewish brothel owner whose young daughter falls in love with one of the female sex-workers. Vogel’s retelling of this story follows the lives of the members of the Yiddish acting troupe who toured with Asch’s play around Europe before taking it to America.

This story is about so many things, but central to it are the experiences of immigration, assimilation and the pain of losing one’s homeland.

This production is recommended for ages 12 and above.

This amateur production is presented by an arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLC, servicing the Dramatists Play Service collection.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
