CBI theatre trip to see Indecent at
Seattle Repertory Theatre
2 p.m. Sunday, October 20, 2019
Reservations needed by Friday, July 12
Please join CBI’s Program Committee for a field trip to see Seattle Repertory Theatre’s production of Indecent, a drama with klezmer music by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel. Indecent tells the story of Sholem Asch’s controversial 1906 play, God of Vengeance.
God of Vengeance is about a Jewish family in Poland that owned a brothel. The pivotal scene is a kiss and expressions of love and longing between the brothel owner’s teenage daughter and one of the young prostitutes “downstairs.” God of Vengeance was a hit in Yiddish theaters in Europe and North America, but in 1923 when it was performed on Broadway in English, the cast and producers were found guilty of performing “immoral” drama. Indecent concludes with the fate of the theater troupe after they were deported back to Europe.
Friends and family are welcome to join CBI members.
