"Indecent" at OSF

Saturday, August 31, 2019 30 Av 5779

8:00 PM - 11:00 PMOregon Shakespeare Festival, Ashland

This season Oregon Shakespeare Festival is presenting the Tony Award winning play Indecent, written by Paula Vogel. A spirited and revolutionary love story (with fabulous music and dancing) that celebrates Yiddish language and literature, Indecent charts the real-life controversy surrounding Sholem Asch’s play God of Vengeance and the Jewish artists who faced persecution when bringing it to Broadway in 1932. It features a Jewish cast and production team and was developed and commissioned by OSF as part of their American Revolutions series. (More about Indecent at the OSF website.)

In addition to being an excellent play, the Jewish themes are rich and deserving of a Shabbaton with our friends from Temple Emek Shalom.

We will have the opportunity to enjoy joint highly participatory Friday night activities and Saturday morning services at Temple Emek Shalom led by the rabbis and members of both congregations. On Saturday afternoon, OSF is preparing a program with the creators of the production tailored particularly for us. After we see the play together on Saturday night, August 31, we will have the opportunity for a panel discussion with members of the cast.
