Plays of Jewish Interest: An Interactive Online Catalog
By Ellen Schiff & Michael Posnick


Welcome to Plays of Jewish Interest an interactive resource and meeting place for playwrights, producers, directors, theatre managers, producers, actors and scholars.

Plays of Jewish Interest is a collaborative project of the Foundation for Jewish Culture (FJC) and All About Jewish Theatre, the global website to promote and enhance Jewish theatre and performing arts worldwide.

This catalog is an update of the 1982 NFJC Plays of Jewish Interest, edited Edward M. Cohen. This revision reflects the burgeoning repertoire of plays of Jewish interest available in English to the international community.

What you will find in this catalog:

Titles and authors of approximately 2000 plays and wherever available brief synopses, reviews/blurbs, genres, length, production information, length, settings, casting information, production history and contact information. The catalog also lists categories of Jewish content, e.g. historical, biblical, Holocaust drama, etc.
The repertoire is a vital organism, constantly growing and evolving. Complete and current data were not always available and there are, inevitably, omissions and errors. We solicit and welcome user participation.

To update, correct or supply information for a current listing, to add a play or other pertinent information to the listing, please go to All About Jewish Theatre Resource Center - Plays Section  

Directory of Plays of Jewish Interest for Young Audiences (in collaboration with AJT)

As to the perennial question: What is a Jewish play ? Plays of Jewish Interest is neither doctrinaire not definitive.

The catalogue is designed to be as inclusive as possible, leaving questions of Jewish relevance to the discrimination and interests of individual users.


The editors wish to thank Elise Bernhardt, Executive Director, the Board, officers and staff of the Foundation for Jewish Culture for supporting this project, and express particular gratitude to Richard Siegel, Larry Pitterman, Joshua Kutz-Flamenbaum, Kristen Runk and Nancy Schwartzman. The patient, diligent research and editorial assistance of Jonathan (Yoni) Oppenheim were instrumental in the creation this project. Special thanks to Michelle MoskowitzBrown , Director of Operations at FJC.

We trust you will find this catalog a useful tool and thank you in advance for your participation in making this a vital resource for the international theatre community.
