The Last Days of Judas Iscariot 

When: March 9-13 2011
Price: $15-20

Stephen Adly Guirgis' play, part of an impressive canon that includes Jesus Hopped the "A" Train and Our Lady of 121st Street, starred Sam Rockwell and Eric Bogosian when it opened off-Broadway under the direction of Philip Seymour Hoffman. Guirgis' penchant for asking tough questions and not taking easy answers sets the stage for one of history's least-understood figures, Judas Iscariot. This cosmic court includes testimonies by Sigmund Freud, as well as Mary Magdalene and, of course, Satan himself. The play originally was scheduled to run in February, but last-minute construction issues at REP's new space at 213 Fayetteville St. forced a postponement (see Related Stories below). Shows are at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, and Sunday at 2 and 7 p.m. —Christina Cass
