Tickets: SOLD OUT. Tickets will NOT be available for purchase at the door.

This staged reading of Sholem Asch’s 1906 milestone play God of Vengeance, will be directed by Barbara Grossman as a complement to Indecent, the Tony award-winning play being presented in Boston this Spring. Seen by some as a seminal work of Jewish theatre, and by others as an act of traitorous libel, God of Vengeance inspired Indecent. In Asch’s play, a Jewish brothel owner attempts to become respectable by commissioning a Torah scroll and marrying off his daughter to a yeshiva student. The performance is in English.

Talk back with Asch’s great-grandson David Mazower, Yiddish Book Center Bibliographer and Editorial Director, to follow the reading.

Made possible with generous support from Barbara and Steven Grossman.
