The Last Days of Judas Iscariot

The Last Days of Judas Iscariot

Off Broadway 2017.

A play by - Stephen Adly Guirgis; an all female cast.

Performed Without Double or Triple Casting For the First Time, history's most famous double-cross is under the microscope in the provocative and irreverently funny The Last Days of Judas Iscariot by Stephen Adly Guirgis. Urban night court in "Hope -a ghetto of purgatory" is the backdrop, with Judas on trial for his betrayal of Christ, his soul left in the balance.

A trove of historic witnesses including Freud, Mother Theresa, Satan and Pontius Pilate deliver their testimony with raw honesty and scathing humor. As the play unfolds we are forced along with them to examine our ideals and ideas of love, divine mercy, free will and forgiveness coupled with the notion that evil may not be the presence of hate but the absence of compassion.

“It’s going to be a fun show with a powerful message. Watch me transform from one character to the next – I will be playing Mother Teresa, Caiaphas the Elder, Satan & Jesus.”
