When DC native Paula Vogel first read the Yiddish play God of Vengeance in school, she was particularly struck by a scene that, when it was performed there in 1923, marked Broadway’s first onstage kiss between two women. For Vogel, a gay Jewish woman herself, it seemed like a crucial moment of representation. So the Pulitzer-winning playwright (How I Learned to Drive) decided to tell the story of that production in a work of her own, chronicling how God of Vengeance writer Sholem Asch and his actors were arrested and charged with moral impropriety.
