The Last Days of Judas Iscariot
By Stephen Adly Guirgis

19:00, Fri 19th – Mon 22nd November 2021 at Fitzpatrick Hall
Michaelmas Week 6 to Week 7

“If we are all eternal, and if Human Life is only the first mile in a billion, do you honestly believe that God could abandon any mothahfuckah so soon in the journey?”

In purgatory, a court case is being heard against Judas Iscariot, the notorious betrayer of Jesus Christ. Witnesses from across history are invited to give their testimonies. Was it a terrible crime, or was it a necessary part of God’s great plan?
Set in a time-bending, seriocomically imagined courtroom where saints talk streets slang and lawyers barter with Satan, The Last Days of Judas Iscariot is an ambitious philosophical meditation on religion. The play alternates between riotously funny and deeply thought-provoking, revealing at its heart profound reflections on human fallibility, guilt and forgiveness.

Regardless of your faith-or lack thereof-you may discover a new gem or two from a two-millennia-old story.
