When: Fridays & Saturdays, November 13 & 14 and 20 & 21 at 7:30 pm, with matinees on Sundays, November 15 & 22 at 3:30 pm, Memorial Episcopal Church, 1407 Bolton St. Free, although free-will donations are gratefully accepted.
Mark your calendar to attend one of the performances of Memorial Players’ production of The Last Days of Judas Iscariot. Written by Pultizer Prize–winning playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis, directed by Rina Steinhauer, and produced by Monty Howard and Kristine Smets, this is a must-see event. Funny, provocative, and profound, the play is a modern, urban examination of biblical and ontological themes: the nature of guilt, redemption, forgiveness, compassion, and the role of free will. This is not a religious play, nor does it disrespect religion—but it does turn a comedic and questioning eye on Christian doctrine, with appearances by Mother Teresa, Freud, and the Prince of Darkness himself. Support the production at pre-show gala receptions, 5:30 pm on Fridays and Saturdays at neighborhood homes. For a donation of $40, reception attendees enjoy fine food and wine before the show and receive a priority reserved seat to the performance. To order reception tickets, please visit the Memorial Players website at www.memorialplayers.org/reservations or call Paul Seaton at 410-615-4532.
