The Bible’s greatest villain is on trial in a town called Hope, deep in the heart of present-day purgatory. Everyone from Mother Teresa to Sigmund Freud to Satan is being called to testify. But how can a jury condemn a man for betrayal when no one in the courtroom can agree on the nature of faith, free will, or redemption? Forum takes on this challenging question in the DC premiere of this darkly funny, deeply challenging examination of faith and forgiveness. Judas is directed by multiple Helen Hayes Award nominee John Vreeke, Forum’s artistic advisor.

Also following the Sunday matinée of The Price I will be doing my last 5X5: Playwrights Respond at the J.

Monday: Rorschach Theater is holding a happy hour at Stetsons where you can buy a discounted ticket to their fundraiser and well, get drunk with the Rorschach kids. More info here.

Wednesday: I’m going to a happy hour reunion for my high school. This is the first time in the almost 9 years since I’ve graduated that I’ve gone to any alumni thing, I’m curious to see who shows up. If nothing else, I’ll be able to grab a drink with my fellow alumna, my sister.
