Where: First Church in Boston, 66 Marlborough Street, Boston, MA, 02116

Equal parts piety, prayer and profanity, The Last Days of Judas Iscariot by Pulitzer Prize winning and Tony Award nominated playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis, is a poignant, darkly comedic examination of condemnation and compassion. Set in Hope, a rundown corner of Purgatory, a trial convenes to re-examine Judas’s crimes and determine his fate- does he deserve to ascend to Heaven or is he doomed to remain in Hell? After a cavalcade of famous (and infamous) witnesses, including Sigmund Freud, Mother Theresa and Satan, the jury- and the audience- are left to question everything they thought they knew about redemption, faith and forgiveness.
