The Last Days of Judas Iscariot is set in a time-bending, darkly comic world between Heaven and Hell. Judas finds himself on trial in purgatory, with his lawyers bargaining for his admission to Heaven. The trial flashes back through Judas' life as all the way to his childhood, and incredible figures from history and beyond are called to testify, including Mother Teresa, Sigmund Freud and Satan himself. As the trial goes on, the audience must confront old truths and examine what it means to really forgive. This production marks the return of one of the Round House Theatre's most popular productions, which was hailed as "preposterously entertaining" by the Washington Post. Learn More
