A courtroom comedy, biblical drama, and thought-provoking look at history's most (in)famous traitor: Judas Iscariot... Mostly as viewed through the eyes (and testimony) of such luminaries as Mother Teresa, Pontius Pilate, Satan (!), and others. Edgy, streetwise dialogue, colorful characters, and courtroom shenanigans of the highest order all combine to make Last Days... one of Stephen Adly Guirgis' most enjoyable plays.
Characters: 25! Men, women and children. Much doubling in the original production.
Scenes/Monologues: Something for everyone. Hilarious guttermouth Saint Monica, lady lawyer Cunningham, the eviscerating Satan, and don't forget to check out the terrific closing monologue from guilty sinner Butch Honeywell!
