A time-bending, history-warping meditation on the meaning of forgiveness, Stephen Adly Guirgis’ "The Last Days of Judas Iscariot" is both equally comic and dramatic, as the bible’s most infamous sinner is put on trial for his crimes.

Set in Hope, a corner of downtown Purgatory where “it don’t smell good,” Judas is tried by a Civil War deserter, prosecuted by a horny Egyptian, defended by an angry Irish/Gypsy, and everyone who was anyone will be called to the stand including Mother Teresa, Sigmund Freud, a host of saints and sinners and, of course, the Prince of Darkness himself.

"The Last Days of Judas Iscariot" is like no other play - a funny, absurd, and modern new testament for our day and age.
