NEW YORK - s4story -- Celebrating the richness of Jewish heritage through drama, where diversity takes center stage.

Roy Schreiber, a distinguished member of the Dramatists Guild and Network Playwright with Chicago Dramatists, announces the release of his latest book, A Coat of Many Colors: Putting Jewish Characters on Stage. Published by Bookbaby on February 1, 2024, the book (ISBN: 9798350932010) is a collection of five diverse plays challenging traditional stereotypes of Jewish characters.

In a time where representation matters more than ever, Schreiber's work stands as a beacon of diversity and inclusivity. A Coat of Many Colors dismantles stereotypes through its rich narratives, showcasing the complexity and depth of Jewish characters.

The plays featured in the book cover a wide spectrum of stories and characters. From the reimagining of Shylock in "Shylock Revisited" to the gripping tale of screenwriter Salka Viertel's bravery in "Good Deeds," each play offers a fresh perspective on Jewish identity and history.

Roy Schreiber, a former history professor turned playwright, brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to his work. With a background in both American and British historical societies, Schreiber's plays are meticulously researched and expertly crafted.
