Event description

Description

The California Institute for Yiddish Culture and Language and Wilshire Boulevard Temple present theatre dybbuk's only dramatic reading of God of Vengeance, the widely translated, modernistic, and oft-revived drama by Sholem Asch that inspired Indecent, the award-winning Broadway show coming to Los Angeles this June.

God of Vengeance depicts a Jewish brothel owner's efforts to redeem his only child from the sins of her parents, and is also a surprising (some would argue shocking) coming of age story.

Find out why the director and entire cast were arrested for violating the Decency Laws when God of Vengeance premiered in New York in 1923.

This is the English translation of a Yiddish play.
Admission is free, but donations are welcome.
