THE LAST DAYS OF JUDAS ISCARIOT
By Stephen Adly Guirgis
July 14 – 31
Center Theatre at Seattle Center Armory
Set in a time-bending, seriocomically imagined world between Heaven and Hell, THE LAST DAYS OF JUDAS ISCARIOT is a philosophical meditation on the conflict between divine mercy and human free will. This work from Stephen Adly Guirgis, 2015 Pulitzer Prize winning playwright “shares many of the traits that have made Mr. Guirgis a playwright to reckon with in recent years: a fierce and questing mind that refuses to settle for glib answers, a gift for identifying with life’s losers and an unforced eloquence that finds the poetry in lowdown street talk.”- The New York Times
“An ambitious, complicated and often laugh-out-loud religious debate” -The Philadelphia Inquirer)
“Stephen Adly Guirgis has written a real jaw-dropper… expressionistic fantasy… raw language and flamboyantly street-savvy characters… his imagination is dazzling and his command of language downright thrilling.” -Variety.
“one of the most passionate and powerful young playwrights to have come down the theatrical runway…a must for anyone interested in the work of thoughtful and original playwrights.” CurtainUp.
