About the show

If God forgives, why should Judas go to Hell?

In a courtroom in Purgatory, Pontius Pilate, Mother Teresa and Sigmund Freud are called to testify in the case of God and the Kingdom of Heaven and Earth vs. Judas Iscariot.

Faith and forgiveness are challenged in this wildly anarchic and darkly comic courtroom drama by Stephen Aldy Guirgis.
