ABOUT

Surrounded by controversy (the first Broadway production was closed down for portraying unconventional characters and the first lesbian kiss on Broadway), this play was the inspiration for the award-winning Broadway show, Indecent. Yiddish Theatre Ensemble offers audiences the rare opportunity to experience the original play (in English) online for the first time!

Although the original script was set in turn-of-the-20th century Poland, this production is set in New York’s Lower East Side circa 1930 bringing it closer to the American experience.
