Audition Description

The play is an allegorical look at the sort of guilt that can trap us in prisons of our own making. It is about forgiveness. Or rather, our lack of ability to forgive ourselves. The setting is Hope, which manifests itself as a courtroom located in downtown Purgatory. Judas is on trial. The centuries-old betrayal of his best friend is being re-examined. A burned-out judge who hanged himself during the civil war presides over an agnostic defense attorney and a lascivious prosecutor as they battle for the freedom of a catatonic Judas. A Judas who has long ago abandoned the hope that he feels he does not deserve. An increasingly bizarre list of witnesses help take The Last Days of Judas Iscariot from hilarious to surprisingly moving and poignant.

  • Role #1 - Yusef El-Fayoumy

    The lawyer for the prosecution. A hack and a crawler. Sometimes comes across as lousy at his job; however, is actually quite stiff competition for Cunningham. His whole persona is a sham and everyone who meets him knows this. Large role perfect for an actor with wonderful comedic abilities.

  • The Son of God. Always present, but only has one scene in which he attempts to help Judas see that he can change his future. There is a sadness to him, because he knows that this scene will go on for all eternity. His best friend will never forgive himself. Production states: “Very rare is a role that is so loving, genuine, and good.”

  • Role #3 - Bailiff

    The court bailiff. Quite a quiet unassuming person; however, their strength of character shines through and makes this a small but vital role with some good comic moments.

  • Role #4 - Henrietta Iscariot

    A witness. Judas’s devoted mother and a devout believer. Opens the show with a difficult monologue about the lost of her son. Seeking an actress who can bring a real sense of background and family life to Judas’s story.

  • Role #5 - Mother Theresa

    Expiration Date: Oct 31, 2019
  • Role #6 - Simon, the Zealot

    A witness. One of the disciples who, like Judas, doesn’t quite understand what his role was to help Jesus or why Jesus didn’t “kick more ass” during his time on earth. He, like many others, perhaps has found his faith wavering. Now he has reached the gates of heaven. A character who, despite his gritty street exterior, finds himself weighed down by unanswerable questions.

  • Role #7 - Caiaphas the Elder

    A witness. The High Priest of the Sanhedrin, the man who handed Christ over to the Romans after Judas had betrayed him. Although Caiaphas is clearly battling with the memory of his role in Christ’s death, he seeks forgiveness from no one but his God. He stands by his people and his morals and at times can be pillar of strength and at others can just be a broken old man. A large weighty role that is suited to an actor of great gravitas and empathy.

  • Role #8 - Pontius Pilate

    A witness. The 5th prefect of Judea governing from 26-36AD who ordered the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Another character that perhaps can’t come to terms with the role he played in the death of Christ, but is so blinkered by his own self-love that he can’t see the errors he made. A brilliantly funny and urban role, with really highs and lows of emotion. A patriotic and strong-willed role.

  • Role #9 - Butch Honeywell

    Foreman of the jury. Unsure of his place in Purgatory. Seems in denial that he is even dead. His monologue shows the more realistic side of betrayal, the human version. A passionate man who perhaps hides behind a stereotype that he believes he should fit into. Butch’s monologue is a beautiful, poignant end to the play.

  • Role #10 - Saint Monica

    A saint. Fiery and opinionated. A real modern embodiment of faith, showing that there is room for a huge personality and love of god. A real show-stopper.

  • Role #11 - Gloria

    A member of the jury. An angel who is perhaps our closest link between Purgatory and Earth. She is perhaps the most contented of all the characters we meet, happy with her place in heaven and the way the afterlife works. A poignant monologue about the people we leave behind.

  • Role #12 - Saint Peter

    A disciple. A sharp and prickly character, known for his temper. Peter talks about his conversion. A role that showcases the street-smarts of the the piece and another solid comic role.

  • Role #13 - Saint Matthew

    A disciple. Talks about how Jesus saved him from a life of tax-collecting and betraying his people. Helps suggest the dynamic amongst the disciples and the environment that Judas was amongst when he betrayed Jesus. A fun, comic, urban role.

  • Role #14 - Mary Magdalene

    A friend of Judas’. Reminisces about her friendship with Jesus and Judas and laments Judas’ current situation. Her reputation as a whore couldn’t be more wrong. In this characterization of her, she is almost saintly in her faith and pure love for Christ. A wonderful depiction of friendship and a love that will last for ever.

  • Role #15 - Saint Thomas

    A disciple. Also known as “Doubting Thomas” as a result of his doubting Christ’s resurrection. Now aware of his fickle nature, Thomas reflects on who really deserves second chances from God. Really paints a vivid picture of the sort of person Judas was before he committed the ultimate sin.

    A child. The 8-year-old Matthias befriends the 8-year-old Judas. Seen in a flashback of Henrietta Iscariot, he illustrates the giving and loving nature of Judas. A fun role with loads of comic potential and a great opportunity to create a physical characterization.

Landed role in a film within 2 weeks! I would like to thank Explore Talent for signing up my daughter Terah. She has only been with Explore Talent for about 2 weeks and received a submission request on her calendar for a role in a feature film. Everything went so fast. She is new to acting/modeling. She was scheduled for an auditon and within one week was notified that she got the part. She was so excited. This is her first project and it gave her the confidence she needs for other auditions. Thanks. Sonya Burnett
