WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

God of Vengeance tells the wrenching story of a brothel owner's attempt to marry off his daughter. He wants her to lead a dignified, religious life, but the world of sin she grew up in draws her back. This groundbreaking drama featured the first lesbian kiss on Broadway when it premiered in 1923.

This revival is presented by New Yiddish Rep, a company that stages plays in Yiddish for diverse audiences, especially non-Yiddish speakers. Its 2015 production of Death of a Salesman received two Drama Desk Award nominations and praise for illuminating a classic by performing it in Yiddish. God of Vengeance is performed in Yiddish with English supertitles.
