By Stephen Adly Guirgis
An immersive theater experience mixing both comedy and drama amidst a time-bending world between heaven and hell. The Last Days of Judas Iscariot reexamines the fate of the New Testament’s greatest villain, a traitor, who betrayed his Lord for 30 pieces of silver.
Set in a Purgatory courtroom, Judas is brought to judgement to determine if he is guilty of greatest betrayal of all time. Whether Judas enters through the gates of heaven or burns in hell rests upon the testimony of saints and sinners including Pontius Pilate, Mother Teresa, Sigmund Freud, Satan and others. Through outrageous comedy and deep pathos, this play challenges audiences to reflect upon their own beliefs, their own sin and to reconsider what they know about forgiveness, faith, and the human inside one of the history’s most infamous figures.
