The Last Days of Judas Iscariot

‘The Last Days Of Judas Iscariot’ tells the story of a ballsy (dead) lawyer, Fabiana Aziza Cunningham, seeking to set the record straight about the Bible’s most notorious (dead) sinner, one Judas Iscariot. In this rip-roaring, no-holds-barred, seriocomically imagined court room drama, (dead) witnesses from Sigmund Freud to Satan himself are called forth to give evidence in the case “God and the Kingdom of Heaven and Earth versus Judas Iscariot” to determine the accused’s eternal fate: damnation or salvation.

Written by Stephen Adly Guirgis, ‘The Last Days of Judas Iscariot’ is a truly modern play, mixing a stirring sense of Catholic existential pain and a wonderment at the paradoxes of faith with the lowdown street talk and in-your-face humour that characterises downtown New York.

The Last Days of Judas Iscariot was performed from 23rd-25th June 2015 on the Queen’s Lawn, Imperial College.
