GOD OF VENGEANCE - A STAGED READING

March 10 - BENEFITING SOJOURN, Southern Jewish Resource Network for Gender and Sexual Diversity
VENGEANCE-WEB

God of Vengeance, written in Yiddish by Sholem Asch in 1906, chronicles a Jewish brothel owner who attempts respectability by commissioning a Torah scroll and marrying his daughter to a yeshiva student. In 1923, God of Vengeance was translated into English and staged on Broadway at the Apollo Theatre, where its run was cut short after six weeks when the cast, producer, and one of the theater owners were indicted and convicted on obscenity charges. After a protracted battle, the conviction was successfully appealed. Indecent, a 2017 Tony-nominated play by Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel, tells of those events. In 1998, Jewish Theatre of the South and 7 Stages produced God of Vengeance here in Atlanta, under the direction of Joe Chaikin.
