EDITOR'S NOTE: Due to construction issues, Raleigh Ensemble Players has postponed this production until March.
This play by Stephen Adly Guirgis, part of an impressively growing canon of work including Jesus Hopped the 'A' Train and Our Lady of 121st Street, starred Sam Rockwell and Eric Bogosian off-Broadway in 2005. Guirgis' penchant for asking tough questions and not taking easy answers sets the litigious stage for one of history's least-understood characters, Judas Iscariot. This cosmic court embraces unrestricted timelines and includes testimonies by Sigmund Freud, as well as Mary Magdalene and Satan himself, as we witness the conflict between the divine and human free will. Performances begin Friday and continue through Feb. 26 at 213 Fayetteville St. —Christina Cass
