Stephen Adly Guirgis' "The Last Days of Judas Iscariot"
Manuscript illustration, c. 1504
If God is a forgiving God, can He forgive the man who betrayed His beloved Son? Similar to popular TV shows like Lucifer and The Good Place, The Last Days of Judas Iscariot confronts fundamental questions of Christian ideology. Set in a purgatory courtroom where the deceased go to argue for their right to enter heaven and with witnesses ranging from Mary Magdalene to Mother Theresa to Satan, the play examines moral, ethical, religious, and cultural arguments, all delivered through the lens of Guigis’ sharp, in-your-face language.
Stephen Adly Guirgis won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Between Riverside and Crazy in 2015.
