Adelaide Fringe

"Immediate, contemporary and poignant” The Herald

A Political Thriller with Biblical Bite in support of Amnesty International

In a contemporary single-faith Middle Eastern state, a charismatic preacher with a radical message of peace emerges from the desert. As religious violence tears the region apart, his followers are pursued, persecuted and imprisoned. Finally, a 21st century ‘Judas’ is arrested, interrogated and ultimately forced to betray his leader; but is he really the betrayer or betrayed, and who is ultimately pulling the strings?

From the same team that presented the 5 Star sell-out show 'Mengele' and award winning ‘Shell Shock’ at Adelaide Fringe 2018, JUDAS is a new play, premiering at the 2019 Fringe. A scratch performance in Brighton was described as “an intriguing, surprising and relevant parable for modern times” (Fringe Guru). This production features Adelaide Critics Circle Emerging Artist of the Year Stefanie Rossi with Tim Marriott (Mengele, Shell Shock) and Marc Clement  (Toyer, Two, Reasonable Doubt)  directed by Tony Knight (Mengele, Toyer, Two, Reasonable Doubt).

"two courageous companies create a compelling hour of gruelling theatre, and at a time when we ignore their message at our own peril."
Jude Hines - Stage Whispers
4 STARS - "In this compelling 21st century take on Judas, it is difficult to conceive of an actor more engrossed in his part than Tim Marriott this Fringe"
The Advertiser
This is a powerful, moving, and vitally important piece of theatre, the sort of thing that the Fringe was created to present.... Do not let this slip by"
Barry Lenny - Broadway World
