After 2,000 years in purgatory, Judas finally gets his day in court. A dazzling drama spiced with dark comic overtones. Set in the present, witnesses emerge out of all times and places, from Pontius Pilate to Sigmund Freud. Last Days of Judas Iscariot was first produced at the Public Theater, New York City, with Philip Seymour Hoffman directing in 2005.

Variety says, “Stephen Adly Guirgis has written a real jaw-dropper …expressionistic fantasy … flamboyantly street-savvy characters … his command of language downright thrilling.” While the Guardian (UK) called it “An extraordinary play … not since Angels in America have I seen a play so unafraid to acknowledge the power of the spirit …”
