Santa Ana College's Performing Arts Department Presents "The Last Days of Judas Iscariot"

(Santa Ana, CA) – Santa Ana College’s Performing Arts Department presents “The Last Days of Judas Iscariot”, a hilarious, poignant, thought-provoking work by Pulitzer-prize winning playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis. Filled with a zany cast of characters, the play asks one of the most plaguing questions in the Christian ideology: What happened to Judas Iscariot? Set in a court room in Purgatory, the play tells the story of the ultimate fate of Judas and uses flashbacks to an imagined childhood, and lawyers who call for the testimonies of such witnesses as Mother Teresa, Caiaphas, Saint Monica, Sigmund Freud and Satan himself.

Friday, March 29th and Saturday, March 30th at 7:30pm

Friday, April 5th and Saturday, April 6th at 7:30pm
