The Last Days of Judas Iscariot

Judas has been condemned to spend eternity in Hell after selling out the son of God and then committing suicide. If there is a God – a God that we are told preaches forgiveness and mercy – then why has Judas not been forgiven? Set in Purgatory (which closely resembles downtown New York; in our case, a seedy bar), The Last Days of Judas Iscariot is a courtroom drama. The story uses characters that most people have heard of as witnesses, as the court decides who was responsible for Jesus’s death and what should now happen to Judas – we look at betrayal and forgiveness in everyday life, and how we can punish and condemn ourselves, or forgive and celebrate; how each and every one of us has our own ‘heavens’, ‘hells’ or ‘purgatories’ that we can throw ourselves into, in a semi-comedic fashion.
