Powerful cast and creative concept. Rep East lives up to its reputation for solid work. One of the few 99 Seat Plan theatres offering intelligent and edgy theatre.

Amazing story and script ( someone did a lot homework ), the actors
were right on, didn't miss a que. Very enjoyable, I had a good time. Only thing is- play was long.

Quotes & Highlights

“__ The Last Days of Judas Iscariot__ shares many of the traits that have made Mr. Guirgis a playwright to reckon with in recent years: a fierce and questing mind that refuses to settle for glib answers, a gift for identifying with life’s losers and an unforced eloquence that finds the poetry in lowdown street talk…Mr. Guirgis is a zealous and empathic researcher, and he presents dilemmas of ancient Galilee in terms winningly accessible to the twenty-first century…” —The New York Times

Description

The Last Days of Judas Iscariot tells the story of Judas. While in purgatory, he litigates with his lawyers for entry into heaven. The play uses flashbacks to an imagined childhood, and lawyers who call for the testimonies of such witnesses as Mother Teresa, Caiaphas, Sigmund Freud and Satan.
