Synopsis


Was Judas Iscariot the most duplicitous traitor in history?


Or a misunderstood pawn in God's greater plan?


In his 2005 play, Pulitzer Prize-winner Stephen Adly Guirgis puts Judas back on trial against God and the Kingdom of Heaven and Earth.


By turns hilarious, poignant and provocative, this compelling piece challenges ideas of faith, redemption and humanity.


A cast of biblical and historical characters - from Mary Magdalene to Sigmund Freud - assemble in a contemporary urban courtroom to contest the world's most infamous act of betrayal.
