About this show

The Last Days of Judas Iscariot by Tony Award-nominated playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis follows a wild and exciting trial, set in a court room somewhere between Heaven and Hell. Two attorneys and a parade of famous witnesses - Mother Theresa, Sigmund Freud and Pontius Pilate - argue over the fate of Judas Iscariot, known for his betrayal of Jesus. Equally pious and profane, the play transcends religion, offering a compelling, gritty and hilarious look at free will, destiny, faith, forgiveness and redemption. "The Last days of Judas Iscariot shares many of the traits that have made Mr. Guirgis a playwright to reckon with in recent years: a fierce and questing mind that refuses to settle for glib answers, a gift for identifying with life's losers and an unforced eloquence that finds the poetry in lowdown street talk." -NY Times "Stephen Adly Guirgis has written a real jaw-dropper...expressionistic fantasy...raw language and flamboyantly street-savvy characters...his imagination is dazzling and his command of language downright thrilling." -Variety
