Summary

Judas Iscariot is an over-the-top drama queen in this apocryphal play. In a room exactly as depicted in Leonardo Da Vinci's "The Last Supper," interior decorator Iscariot and his young male lover and assistant have only a short time to prepare the room before the arrival of Jesus and his disciples. Services and supplies of the locals in Jerusalem fall far below his standards, and he considers taking a new job offer from the high priests and pharisees, decorating an entire chain of temples.
