John R Smith Jnr
"[Judas] shares many of the traits that have made Mr. Guirgis a playwright to reckon with in recent years: a fierce and questing mind that refuses to settle for glib answers, a gift for identifying with life's losers and an unforced eloquence that finds the poetry in lowdown street talk…Mr. Guirgis is a zealous and empathic researcher, and he presents dilemmas of ancient Galilee in terms winningly accessible to the twenty-first century…"
"Stephen Adly Guirgis has written a real jaw-dropper…expressionistic fantasy…raw language and flamboyantly street-savvy characters…his imagination is dazzling and his command of language downright thrilling."
"…one of the most passionate and powerful young playwrights to have come down the theatrical runway…a must for anyone interested in the work of thoughtful and original playwrights."
"An extraordinary play…not since Angels in America have I seen a play so unafraid to acknowledge the power of the spirit…"
