An immersive theater experience mixing both comedy and drama amidst a time-bending world between heaven and hell. The Last Days of Judas Iscariot reexamines the fate of the New Testament’s greatest villain, a traitor, who betrayed his Lord for 30 pieces of silver. Set in a Purgatory courtroom, Judas is brought to judgment to determine if he is guilty of the greatest betrayal of all time. Whether Judas enters through the gates of heaven or burns in hell rests upon the testimony of saints and sinners including Pontius Pilate, Mother Teresa, Sigmund Freud, Satan, and others. Through outrageous comedy and deep pathos, this play challenges audiences to reflect upon their own beliefs, and their own sin and to reconsider what they know about forgiveness, faith, and the human inside one of history’s most infamous figures.

THE LAST DAYS OF JUDAS ISCARIOT is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.

“…a real jaw-dropper…expressionistic fantasy…raw language and flamboyantly street-savvy characters…his imagination is dazzling and his command of language downright thrilling.”
