The Last Days of Judas Iscariot

Presented by the Guildhall School

The Last Days of Judas Iscariot at the Guildhall School

A court in downtown Purgatory deliberates over the ultimate fate of Judas Iscariot. If God is all-forgiving, why should Judas be condemned to an eternity in Hell? Is it fair?

This exuberant, witty and irreverent play by Stephen Adly Guirgis challenges perceptions about faith and forgiveness.

Listen to our podcasts:

  • Cast & Crew: Stage Manager Juliet Hague and cast members Jasmine Lee-Jones and Matthew Nikitow talk discuss the joys and challenges of large casts, the relationship between director and stage manager, and what it's like to bring well-known characters and historical figures to life on stage.
  • Designer: Libby Watson gives us an insight into the design process, from how she works with director Wyn Jones and our lighting and sound designers to the design decisions of including a revolve and a white set.

Contains strong language and material that some people may find offensive. Not suitable for under-16s.
