Coat of Many Colors

This is the final play of a tetralogy on which Barrie Stavis has been working for many years. The four plays are separate works, each independent of one another; they have a common theme, but each play is explored from a different axis of observation. Galileo Galilei in Lamp at Midnight, Joe Hill in The Man Who Never Died, John Brown in Harpers Ferry, and Joseph in the present Coat of Many Colors were put on trial for their thoughts and deeds, found guilty and punished, but were vindicated by later generations. Thus, the heresy of one age becomes the accepted truth of the next.

Barrie Stavis (June 16,1906 – February 2, 2007) was a distinguished American playwright. He has authored several powerful plays about men struggling in the vortex of history. They advocate ideas, suffer, often are executed, but eventually their ideas win. The heresy of one age becomes the established truth of the next. His subjects include scientist Galileo, abolitionist John Brown, and labor leader Joe Hill. His play, "Lamp at Midnight", about Galileo's struggle with the Catholic Church to get his ideas accepted, was performed and televised on the Hallmark Hall of Fame in 1966. Melvyn Douglas starred as Galileo.

Stavis's plays can be done on a clean, simple stage. They have been translated into 28 languages and have been produced in dozens of major theaters around the world and in numerous college theaters.

Barrie Stavis was actively involved in all his work until his death on February 2, 2007, at the age of 100.
