Photo Flash: Indecent at the Menier Chocolate Factory

Production images have been released of Indecent at the Menier Chocolate Factory, ahead of its opening this week.

The production explores the origins of the highly controversial play The God of Vengeance by Sholem Asch. We follow the path of the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it in this deeply moving play accompanied by a small live klezmer band.

The show reunites Vogel and director Rebecca Taichman who co-created and directed the original production. Indecent had its world premiere at Yale Repertory Theatre in October 2015, followed by an Off-Broadway run at the Vineyard Theatre in May 2016, later transferring to Broadway in April 2017.

It was nominated for the Tony Award for Best New Play and received Tony Awards for Best Direction of a Play for Taichman and Best Lighting Design of a Play for Christopher Akerlind (who will also light the Menier production).

Cast includes Cory English as The Middle (Male), Beverley Klein as The Elder (Female), Finbar Lynch as The Stage Manager, Molly Osborne as The Ingenue (Female), Peter Polycarpou as The Elder (Male), Alexandra Silber as The Middle (Female) and Joseph Timms as The Ingenue (Male).
