(SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb. 9, 2018) — Scottsdale Community College’s School of Film+Theatre presents the stage play “The Last Days of Judas Iscariot,” by Steven Adly Guirgis, March 2-3 and 9-10.
The play, directed by Bill True, co-chair of the School of Film+Theatre, reexamines the plight and fate of the New Testament’s most infamous and unexplained sinner. The courtroom drama is set in a time-bending, darkly comic world between heaven and hell.
“Two thousand plus years later and we’re still grappling with how we feel about Judas Iscariot,” said True. “On one hand, he’s the ultimate betrayer and the most vilified character in the New Testament. On the other hand, some have taken a much more forgiving view.”
Lead student actors in the play are Andy Cahoon as El-Fayoumi, Mary Townsend as Judge Cunningham, and John Hull as Judas.
Performances are FREE to attend with a reservation and open to the public. To reserve a spot, visit LastDaysOfJudasSCC.eventbrite.com.
