The Last Days of Judas Iscariot
Written by Stephen Adly Guirgus
Directed by Michael Devine

November 23-25 and November 30-December 2
Performances begin at 7:30 pm

The Last Days of Judas Iscariot is a hilarious, irreverent, brilliantly insightful examination of faith and the concept of betrayal. The historical Judas is placed on trial in Purgatory, with a motley group of witnesses including the other Apostles, Mother Teresa, Sigmund Freud and Satan. Using pulsating scatological and colloquial language from our own time, through Judas’ trial we’re made to look at our own preconceptions and biases towards Outsiders and Others. Originally produced by LAByrinth Theater Company in New York under the direction of Philip Seymour Hoffman, The Last Days of Judas Iscariot is a lacerating comedy of no manners.

“From downstairs comes the sound of a heavy door slammed shut.”
Henrik Ibsen A Doll’s House (1879)

In one of the most famous stage directions in the history of modern drama, a young woman, Nora Helmer, walks out on her husband and three small children and doesn’t look back.  Some call it a definitive feminist moment; others, humanist.  Whatever the case, in this precise historical moment, Ibsen’s groundbreaking play has much to teach us about love, ownership, and freedom.
