Steven Bogart to Direct THE LAST DAYS OF JUDAS ISCARIOT

Equal parts piety, prayer, and profanity, The Last Days of Judas Iscariot is a poignant yet hilarious examination of condemnation and compassion. Set in Hope, a rundown corner of Purgatory, a trial convenes to re-examine Judas's crimes and determine his fate- does he deserve to ascend to Heaven or is he doomed to remain in Hell? After a cavalcade of famous (and infamous) witnesses, including Sigmund Freud, Mother Theresa and Satan, the jury- and the audience- are left to question everything they thought they knew about redemption, faith, and forgiveness.

Multiple award winning director Steven Bogart leads sixteen of Boston's finest actors: Liz Adams (Medford-IRNE Award winner and Elliot Norton Award nominee), Blyss Cleveland (Somerville), Patrick Curran (Framingham), Matthew Dray (Medford), Lauren Elias (Brookline-IRNE Award and Dash Award nominee), Cristhian Mancinas-Garcia (East Boston- IRNE Award and Dash Award nominee), Jamie Hernandez (Chelsea, MA), Enosa Ogbeide (Cambridge), Robert Orzalli (East Boston-IRNE Award nominee), Maurice Palmer (Dorchester), Dan Prior (Somerville-IRNE Award nominee), Felton Sparks (Dorchester), Jon Vellante (North Andover- IRNE and Elliot Norton Award nominee), Victor Shopov (Swampscott- IRNE Award and Elliot Norton Award winner), Arthur Waldstein (Brighton), and Rory Lambert-Wright (Amherst) in this witty and withering production.
