About the play

Paula Vogel’s investigation into one of the theatre world’s most controversial and hailed plays, God of Vengeance written by the profound writer Sholem Asch, is a testament to the power theatre in times of uncertainty, chaos and great loss.

The underlining force behind this play, however, is a rebuilding; a restoration of a collapsed community ridden with both external and internal conflict.  What a profound piece to be embarking on during these moments where there has been so much grieving and so much interruption in our lives.  But there are also respites of hope; reminders that we are still connected even when we are apart.  That is what God of Vengeance is for Lemml and the troupe.  It is what has guided us all in this process.  Even in isolation, community prevails, and art remains a vessel from which possibilities to reconnect, rediscover, and believe are as alive as ever.

There is always an element of risk in theatre, but building this piece with everyone has shown that courage, humility, and respect for the art will continue to be driving strengths that will take us through until we can all restore – with new eyes – again.
