by Stephen Adly Guirgis


The Last Days of Judas Iscariot is a hilarious and extraordinary courtroom drama where history's most infamous betrayal is dissected by the forces of good and evil. Published to coincide with the European premiere at the Almeida Theatre, London, from 29 March - 10 May 2008, this is the third play by Guirgis on the Methuen Drama list and follows the critical success of In Arabia We'd All be Kings, and Jesus Hopped the A-Train. Figures such as Pontious Pilate, Mother Theresa and Sigmund Freud are called to testify in a trial of God, the Kingdom of Heaven and Earth versus Judas Iscariot in a court that owes as much to the ghetto as the Gospels. Stephen Adly Guirgis uses the violent, chaotic energy of New York City to explore the timeless questions of free will and responsibility; of faith and fate.
