Playhouse on the Square, in partnership with Friends of Facing History and Ourselves, The National Jewish Theater Foundation, and super sponsor, Dr. Thomas Ratliff, is thrilled to present a new, pivotal work by Paula Vogel.

In 1923, a Jewish theatre troupe produced a controversial play on Broadway that led to the entire company being arrested on the grounds of obscenity. Playwright, Paula Vogel, recounts the controversy surrounding this play and the lives of the actors who created it. Indecent questions the fear of love, the joy of making art, and the courage to do so during the rise of Nazism.

Playhouse on the Square’s Production of Indecent Will Run in Conjunction with NJFT Holocaust Remembrance Days

Playhouse on the Square is proud to participate in the 6th annual National Jewish Theater Foundation Holocaust Theater International Initiative - Remembrance Readings. This production commemorates: International Holocaust Memorial Day - Monday January 27, 2020; Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) - April 20-21, 2020; and Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass) - November 9-10, 2020. With our talents we honor the victims and survivors of the Holocaust. Our collective artistic goal is to keep alive their memories, stories, and, never to be forgotten lessons. May the power of live theatre serve as a moral compass in today’s world and for future generations.
