The award-winning Phoenix Theatre Ensemble presents Robert Patrick's modern version of "the greatest story ever told" at New York's The Wild Project. Mary is a political revolutionary and mother of a 30-year-old reluctant pacifist prophet, Pilate is the urbane, witty but ruthless prefect of the Roman Province of Judea, and Judas is a young man who's a disciple of Jesus of Nazareth and the protégé of Pontius Pilate. Judas struggles with what to believe and who to follow in this modern-dress battle of wills. The play concludes with Pilate and the prophet in an explosive ultimate showdown between simple faith and political opportunity. Funny, modern and controversial, Judas delves into questions of faith, religion, money and politics in a production that TheatreScene.com calls "dynamic."
All offers for Judas have expired.
