The Last Days of Judas Iscariot

Featured

The Last Days of Judas Iscariot is a hilarious, poignant, thought-provoking work by Pulitzer-prize winning playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis. Boasting a large, zany cast of characters, the play asks one of the most plaguing questions in the Christian ideology: What happened to Judas Iscariot? The facts (we think!) we know are these: Judas was the disciple of Jesus who betrayed his friend and teacher to the authorities. He is seen as the man responsible for Jesus’s death; afterwards, Judas fell into despair and hung himself from an olive tree; since then, he has been suffering for his deeds deep in Hell, and will continue to do so for all eternity. Is that really fair? Was Judas the duplicitous master of his own fate, a much-suffering pawn used for Jesus’s ends, or just a man who made a mistake? Set in a courtroom in Purgatory, The Last Days puts Judas’ case to a hilarious, riotous, piercing trial, the results of which are sure to make the inhabitants of Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory — and the audience — reconsider what each thought they knew about forgiveness, faith, and the human inside one of the history’s most infamous figures.

The Best of Friends

Featured

Rachel Wyatt – member of the Order of Canada and recipient of the Queen’s Jubilee Medal – is one of Canada’s most beloved writers, having penned numerous novels, collections of short stories, and scores of plays for radio and the stage. Rachel has adapted her acclaimed novel Letters to Omar for the stage in this world premiere of The Best of Friends. This story follows the adventures of three older women trying to make a difference in the world. The central character, Dorothy, is recently retired, childless, thrice married and now single. She spends her days fighting to keep her modest home out of the hands of developers and indulging in her lifelong hobby of writing letters she never sends to famous people – most frequently, Omar Sharif. In the preparation and aftermath of Dorothy and her friends’ attempt to pull off a major fund-raising dinner, Wyatt explores with wit and insight what gives meaning to life on both personal and universal levels.
Praise for Letters to Omar:
“Laced with equal measures of humour, wit, irony and insight… she [Wyatt]­­­­ does not have to worry about her own legacy, burnished as it is by this latest novel.”   Winnipeg Review

Dead Man’s Cellphone

Featured

Sarah Ruhl (In the Next Room, The Clean House) has made a name for herself as one of America’s most exciting young playwrights. Her work is always laced with surprise and humour as she tackles contemporary themes, which under a lesser writer’s pen, might come across as didactic. Dead Man’s Cellphone is every bit as intriguing as the title suggests. Jean, the main character, impulsively answers a dead man’s cellphone, and from then on, the play unfolds in a perfect blend of suspense and farce. On the surface, the story explores the paradox of modern technology’s ability to both unite and isolate people in the digital age, but on a deeper level it confronts the question of how identity itself is formed. Are we who we think we are?  Or are we who others think we are? Both hilarious and nail-biting, Dead Man’s Cellphone is a great pre-Halloween offering.
