Indecent tells the fascinating true story of Sholem Asch's controversial play, The God of Vengeance, and the artists who risked everything to bring it to the stage.

The play follows the journey of a small theatre company as they tell us the story of Asch’s play from its origins in Poland 1907. The play achieved great success on the stages of Europe and in the Yiddish theatre scene of downtown New York City. But when an English-translation was attempted on Broadway, it proved too scandalous for the general public, and the entire cast was arrested and charged with obscenity.
