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

For those steeped in Greek mythology, this outing with the three Tiresias figures is a special treat, but the play also works with a general audience. In just about an hour (with no intermission), three talented actors bring to life this tormented and sublime persona. They provide a fascinating backstory for the blind prophet we know best from the Oedipus plays.

Capricious gods, forbidden love, false prophets, true seers, ancient kings, bandit queens, switched genders, eyes plucked out in fistfuls and a healthy dose of gallows humor. Is the future of mankind a comedy or a tragedy?
The show runs 1 hour, 10 minutes, with no intermission.
