The Last Days of Judas Iscariot
By Stephen Adly Guirgis
Winner of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for drama, Stephen Adly Guirgis, takes us on an emotional journey that is sure to provoke both gut busting laughter and tears of heartbreak, as well as feelings of shock and rage. Set in a time-bending, urban flavored, seriocomically imagined world between heaven and hell, The Last Days of Judas Iscariot is a philosophical meditation on the conflict between divine mercy and human free will that takes a close look at the eternal damnation of the Bible's most notorious sinner.
The Last Days of Judas Iscariot is a splendid storm of a play, examining the proper fate of the man who betrayed Jesus and, by conspicuous extension, the fate of unforgiven souls everywhere. It’s a holy courtroom drama and a brazenly irreverent farce, set in Purgatory and animated by slangy, gritty, foulmouthed characters who somehow insist on keeping the stakes very real.
