What will happen when some of the most infamous historical figures meet in a courtroom in purgatory to settle Judas Iscariot’s fate? Stephen Adly Guirgis’ Pulitzer-prize winning drama takes the most notorious betrayal from history and twists it into a psychoanalytic examination, capable of changing our innermost beliefs. Beneath layers of comedy, the heart of this play asks questions of faith, forgiveness, and unconditional love which forces us ruminate over questions of spirituality. Set in the modern day, the wit and irreverence of the characters, gives the play an immediacy which makes it pertinent today.

How To Book Your Ticket

Each individual ticket purchase corresponds to the number of seats you need. For example if there are two of you, buy ONE ticket of ‘Ticket For Two’ – this will give you two seats in a cluster of socially distant seats. One ‘Ticket for Three’ gives you ‘three seats’ and so on.

Each individual ticket as named (subject to availability) gives you:
Ticket For One = one ticket gets you one seat
Ticket For Two = one ticket gets you two seats clustered together
Ticket For Three = one ticket gets you three seats clustered together
Ticket For Four = one ticket gets you four seats clustered together

We apologise for any inconvenience this might cause but the venue has to ensure the safety and well-being of all patrons visiting the theatre and the seating restrictions enable us to comply with these requirements and still stage live theatre for you to enjoy.

To ensure the health and safety of all audience members, performers and theatre staff and reduce the risk of Covid-19 cross-contamination we regret that any latecomers will not be permitted into the Theatre.

The rules keep changing but we are now able to allow you to remain in the building after last orders, which is nomally just before 10pm, until the Bar closes its doors. The theatre will normally shut its doors by 10pm, but you are welcome to remain in the Bar to chat until closing time, which is normally around 10.30pm.

Please ensure you bring and wear a mask in the theatre or purchase one from the box office. Please be advised that if anyone attending shows signs of being unwell or receives a temperature test that indicates they may be affected by Covid19, the venue reserves the right to refuse admission in the interests of health and safety of all patrons in the theatre.

Temperature checks are being taken at point of entry and you are also required to either provide your contact details for track and trace or scan the QR code linked to the NHS tracking app.

Please note all seating purchases are final and refunds in part or in whole cannot be made if you or a member of your party is unable to attend or is refused entry due to late arrival or as a result of a high temperature check or showing symptoms associated with Covid-19. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
