Students from the University of Birmingham’s theatre group, Article 19, present Stephen Adly Guirgis’ The Last Days of Judas Iscariot.
Set in a time-bending, seriocomically imagined world between Heaven and Hell, the play is a philosophical meditation on the conflict between divine mercy and human free will that takes a close look at the eternal damnation of the Bible’s most notorious sinner. Featuring a vividly realised array of characters from Mother Teresa to Satan via Sigmund Freud, the play is focused around the trial of Judas Iscariot in a Purgatory not unlike modern day Brooklyn. The play is able to tackle redemption, faith, and the apathy of modern-day living with balance and raucous humour.
