A Co-production with Headlong Theatre
By Stephen Adly Guirgis
Directed By Rupert Goold
Tickets: £6 - £29.50
The Last Days of Judas Iscariot is a wildly funny court-room drama in which history's most infamous betrayal is dissected by forces of good and evil. In a court room that owes as much to the ghetto to the Gospels, figures such as Pontius Pilate, Mother Teresa and Sigmund Freud are called to testify in a trial of God and the Kingdom of Heaven and Earth versus Judas Iscariot.
Stephen Adly Guirgis is best known for his critically acclaimed Jesus Hopped the 'A' Train (Donmar Warehouse,West End and Off-Broadway), and In Arabia We'd All Be Kings (Hampstead Theatre). Adly Guirgis is a longtime member of Philip Seymour Hoffman's New York LAByrinth Theatre Company.
This production reunites Olivier Award Winning director Rupert Goold with the creative team behind 2007's sell-out West End Macbeth featuring Patrick Stewart. Goold won the 2007 Evening Standard and Critics' Circle Best Director awards for Macbeth.
