The Last Days of Judas Iscariot makes most contemporary plays seem safe, timid and dull, and reminds us of what is missing not only from 99% of our drama but from 99% of our lives – a sense of spirituality and of mystery.
Halfway between Heaven and Hell, in a place called Hope, history’s most infamous sinner stands trial. In a court room that’s as much ghetto as gospel, the witnesses are called – Mother Teresa, Pontius Pilate, Sigmund Freud, a foul-mouthed Saint Monica, a high school football coach, a handful of Jesus’ disciples – to decide questions of forgiveness, mercy, and eternal damnation.
Wildly funny and scathingly provocative, this production was a full mounting of Pound of Flesh Theatre and Pacific Theatre’s critically acclaimed staged reading in 2009.
