ZEN Productions presents the sinful legend "The Last Days of Judas Iscariot" from Friday, January 11 to Sunday, January 13 and Friday, January 18 to Sunday, January 20. Performances for Friday and Saturday are at 8 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Sunday at new The Rose Theater in Holbrook at 1320-2 Lincoln Avenue, 11741.
"The Last Days of Judas Iscariot" by American playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis tells the story of Judas as he awaits trial in purgatory. Whether Judas enters heaven or burns in hell rests upon the witness testimony of saints and sinners such as Satan, Pontius Pilate, Mother Teresa and Sigmund Freud.
Told in the poetic language of the streets of New York, "The Last Days of Judas Iscariot" contemplates the consequences of choice and the limits of forgiveness. Christopher D. Emanuel, director of both "Judas Iscariot" and The ZEN Room (ZEN's performance troupe for shadowcasting The Rocky Horror Picture Show), will direct the play performed by a cast of actors from all over Long Island.
"The Last Days of Judas Iscariot," contains adult language and situations and is for mature audiences. Tickets are $20 for general admission; $15 for senior citizens and students. To reserve your seats, please call The Rose Theater's box office at 631.599.2263.
