Our production of "The Last Days of Judas Iscariot" just closed at the Cultch. It was a great success, playing to sold-out houses and sparking hot debates afterwards. Thanks to all who came to see it!

Five of Vancouver's most exciting theatres conspire to bring "Judas" back to life! Halfway between Heaven and Hell, in a court room that's as much ghetto as gospel, the witnesses are called – Mother Teresa, Pontius Pilate, Sigmund Freud, a foul-mouthed Saint Monica, a college English teacher, a handful of Jesus' disciples – to decide enduring questions of forgiveness, mercy and eternal damnation. Wildly funny and scathingly provocative, this searing look at history's most infamous double-cross forces us to re-examine old truths and consider what it means to forgive. Based on the acclaimed 2009 staged reading by Pound of Flesh Theatre and Pacific Theatre.
