Judas Agonistes

A Play in Two Acts

4 M 2F  105 minutes

Drama Suitable for Adults. In 1929, a young man — “Patient J” — from a well-to-do family has been institutionalized because he is convinced that he is the reincarnation of Judas Iscariot, the betrayer of Jesus. Thomas Parkinson, a Jungian therapist and an agnostic, is brought in as his last best hope for recovery. So, in Judas Agonistes, we have both a clash of philosophies and perhaps the final resolution to the mysterious relationship between Judas and Jesus the Christ. Ultimately, it is both a love story and perhaps a one of the most revealing historical detective stories of all time.†
