"The God of Vengeance" (Got fun nekome) by Sholem Asch was the first Yiddish drama performed in translation across Europe and America.
The play is about a Jewish brothel owner whose daughter has a lesbian relationship with one of her father’s prostitutes.
The producer and the cast were arrested and found guilty of obscenity charges when the play came to New York in 1923, but verdict was overturned on appeal.
