Of all the supporting characters within the Gospels, perhaps none has been more enigmatic and controversial than Judas Iscariot, the apostle commonly recognized for betraying Jesus, leading to his arrest and eventual crucifixion. Whether he was truly evil, or merely fulfilling the preordained steps to redeem humanity, all evidence is brought to the stage when Henley Street Theatre and Richmond Triangle Players contribute to the 2011 Acts of Faith Festival, presenting Stephen Guirgis's “The Last Days of Judas Iscariot.” The off-Broadway work depicts a hypothetical trial about the fate of the Bible's ultimate back stabber. Featuring testimony from Mother Teresa, Sigmund Freud and Satan, the critically acclaimed play is in its last week of production, closing March 19 at the Richmond Triangle Players. $15-$25. 1300 Altamont Ave.
