What will happen when some of the most infamous historical figures meet in a courtroom in purgatory to settle Judas Iscariot’s fate? Stephen Adly Guirgis’ Pulitzer-prize winning drama takes the most notorious betrayal from history and twists it into a psychoanalytic examination, capable of changing our innermost beliefs. Beneath layers of comedy, the heart of this play asks questions of faith, forgiveness, and unconditional love which forces us ruminate over questions of spirituality. Set in the modern day, the wit and irreverence of the characters, gives the play an immediacy which makes it pertinent today.
