The Last Days of Judas Iscariot
On January 27 at 7 pm, the CSHP presents a free reading of The Last Days of Judas Iscariot by Stephen Adly Guirgis.
The Last Days of Judas Iscariot is a powerful work by Pulitzer-prize winning playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis. The play asks one of the most plaguing questions in the Christian ideology: What happened to Judas Iscariot? The facts (we think!) we know are these: Judas was the disciple who betrayed Jesus to the authorities. He fell into despair and hung himself; since then, he has been suffering for his deeds in Hell. Is that really fair? Was Judas duplicitous, a pawn, or just a man who made a mistake? Set in a courtroom in Purgatory, The Last Days puts Judas’ case to trial, the results of which are sure to make the audience reconsider what they know about forgiveness, faith, and the human inside one of the history’s most infamous figures.
Directed by Katie Lynn Mapel, the cast includes (in alphabetical order):
