Downtown Purgatory. A lawyer who believes in divine mercy above

divine justice, and a defendant sentenced to eternal damnation.

With one fateful kiss Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus Christ. Now his fate rests upon the testimony of a colourful host of saints and sinners. Among those called to the witness stand are Satan, Pontius Pilate, Mother Teresa and Sigmund Freud.

Was he an avaricious man? An instrument of divine will? Or a thwarted revolutionary? Will he be forgiven?

Told with blistering passion in the raw and poetic language of the New York streets, this play finds beauty in the most unexpected places.

Presented in association with Project Arts Centre, with the support of Rough Magic Theatre Company.
