Synopsis

In a corner of Purgatory called Hope, the trial is taking place of the most infamous sinner in history – Judas Iscariot. The Prosecution states that he knew what he was doing, and his crimes are too heinous to be forgiven.

But the Defence counsel has a pretty good case too...and a writ signed by God. With the aid of contemporary witnesses including Pilate, Caiaphas and the Apostles, and expert witnesses including Sigmund Freud and Mother Theresa, the case rages on, enlivened by an appearance from Satan himself. Meanwhile, Judas languishes in the Underworld, catatonic, awaiting the verdict...

This cosmic courtroom drama is moving, funny and intelligent in equal measure, and is a brilliant examination of the nature of faith and forgiveness.
