From one of our most admired
playwrights, “an ambitious, complicated and often
laugh-out-loud religious debate” (Toby Zinman, The
Set in a time-bending, 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
Bibles most notorious sinner. This latest work from the
author of Our Lady of 121st Street “shares many of the
traits that have made Mr. Guirgis a playwright to reckon
with in recent years: a fierce and questing mind that
refuses to settle for glib answers, a gift for
identifying with lifes losers and an unforced eloquence
that finds the poetry in lowdown street talk. [Guirgis
brings to the play] a stirring sense of Christian
existential pain, which wonders at the paradoxes of
faith” (Ben Brantley, The New York Times).
