The Last Days of Judas Iscariot
The Last Days of Judas Iscariot

A holy courtroom drama and a brazenly irreverent farce
Oct  9, 10, 15, 16, 17 at 7:30
Oct 16 at 10 am
Black Box Theatre

Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis' time bending, darkly comic play re-examines the plight and fate of the New Testament's most infamous and unexplained betrayal with his signature fierce questioning blended with poetic street talk. Featuring a cast of saints and sinners ranging from Jesus, Saint Peter, and Mother Theresa to Satan himself, this play is not afraid to question everything we think we know about religion, betrayal, hope, and forgiveness.

Due to strong language these performances are recommended for mature audiences only.
