Department Productions

What is the department show this semester?


The Fall 2019 department production will be:

The Last Days of Judas Iscariot

by Stephen Adly Guirgis

directed by Adrienne Williams

Judas, one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ, has been sentenced to eternal damnation for the crime of selling his savior for 30 pieces of gold. We are transported to purgatory where Fabiana fights for his freedom. We hear testimony from everyone from Mother Theresa to Satan. This play examines the complexities of human failure, the isolation of self- loathing, and the grace of forgiveness.
