A Jesuit Off-Broadway

A Jesuit Off-Broadway is Fr. Jim Martin’s account of his involvement with a theater troupe putting on the play “The Last Days of Judas Iscariot.”  The play has a compelling premise; at the behest of St. Monica, Judas is plucked out of hell and put on trial for his act of betrayal.  Fr. Martin was asked to help the playwright and actors understand the theological and historical issues.  The book is a fascinating look at how actors really work.

Here’s a video about the book.
