A very strange trial is about to take place in a town called Hope, located in downtown Purgatory, where criminal defense attorney Fabiana Aziza Cunningham has filed for an appeal on behalf of her catatonic client, Judas Iscariot, who has been sentenced to hell. Her opponent is El Fayoumy, the prosecuting attorney from hell. “Literally from hell,” says Courtney Lomelo, who plays defense attorney Cunningham in Gravity Players’ pretty dang mental staging of The Last Days of Judas Iscariot. The full-length play by Stephen Adly Guirgis also features expert witnesses Sigmund Freud and Satan. “I would say it is a metronome of light and dark, comedy and drama, physical and spiritual,” says Lomelo.

7:30 p.m. Thursday. Continuing 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays; 2 p.m. Sundays. August 10 through September 3. Chelsea Market Theatre, 4617 Montrose. For information, call 281-892-1323 or visit facebook.com/gravityplayers. $25.

[Organizer's Description:]

Gravity Players Theatre Group presents The Last Days of Judas Iscariot An Equity MPC Showcase by Stephen Adly Guirgis What has become of Jesus’ most notorious follower? In this dark comedy, time and space bend in a provocatively poignant quest to decide Judas' fate. Set in a courtroom in Purgatory, an uproarious cast of characters from Heaven and Hell swarm the stage to determine whether he has any grounds for redemption. This compassionate second look at Christian ideology offers urban street poetry, side splitting laughs, and ambitious debate. Featuring: Candice DeMeza, Patricia Duran*, Nick Farco*, Luis Galindo*, Philip Hays, Roc Living, Courtney Lomelo, Paul Menzel*, Jeff Miller, and Josh Morrison. Directed by James Belcher*. *Equity Member
