Les Chatons Noir, a young actors collective in association with Le Chat Noir theatre in Augusta, GA, is pleased to present its season three opener: "The Last Days Of Judas Iscariot" by Stephen Adly Guirgis.
Set in a time-bending, seriocomically imagined world between Heaven and Hell, "The Last Days Of Judas Iscariot" is a philosophical meditation on the conflict between divine mercy and human free will that takes a close look at the eternal damnation of the Bible's most notorious sinner. This brilliant work from a Pulitzer Prize-winning author "shares many of the traits that have made Mr. Guirgis a playwright to reckon with in recent years: a fierce and questing mind that refuses to settle for glib answers, a gift for identifying with life's losers and an unforced eloquence that finds the poetry in lowdown street talk. [Guirgis brings to the play] a stirring sense of Christian existential pain, which wonders at the paradoxes of faith" (Ben Brantley, The New York Times).
This play contains strong language and adult themes and is not recommended for younger audiences. Directed by Brandon Brune.
