Was Judas Iscariot given a bad rap? The Case Western Reserve University/Cleveland Play House (CWRU/CPH) MFA Acting Program explores this question and more in its first remote production, The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis. The cast includes students from the Master of Fine Arts in Acting Class of 2022, along with two Case Western Reserve undergraduate students and two local actors. Department of Theater Associate Professor David Vegh directs.

“It’s a provocative play that will challenge both performers and our audience,” said Donald Carrier, director of the CWRU/CPH MFA Acting Program. It’s certainly different than performing live, but one positive aspect is that it also allows our CWRU community from across the country to see it and support the program.”

The Last Days of Judas Iscariot runs from December 2-6 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5 per household.
