The play's controversial lesbian kiss scene almost at the end, is performed in a Lodz ghetto attic.

"Believe it or not, it's actually the purest love scene I've ever read, in Sholem Asch's play, ... akin to Romeo and Juliet," Vogel says. "And that is an extraordinary radical act, not only for 1907, but I would say for 2017."

It's in Vogel's juxtaposition of past and present, poetry and horror, that the audience finally understands why the play opens with ashes falling from the actors' sleeves.
