This staged reading of Sholem Asch’s 1923 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 theater 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.

Talk back with Asch’s great-grandson David Mazower to follow the reading.

Made possible with generous support from Barbara and Steven Grossman.
