Powerful drama tracing the days leading up to Jesus's death, written by Lucy Gannon.

Classic and contemporary original drama and book dramatisations

Broadcast daily across the week leading up to Easter, this powerful drama traces the days leading up to Jesus's death, from the perspective of the young man you never hear from: Judas.

Multi award winning writer Lucy Gannon (SOLDIER SOLDIER, PEAK PRACTICE), gives us a very personal take on these tempestuous days.

Judas of Kerioth followed Jesus all through His ministry, hearing revolutionary and inspiring teaching, seeing miracles, and part of an intimate team. Like the other apostles, he gave up everything to follow this simple teacher, and yet, with the kiss of friendship, he betrayed the man he loved and who loved him.

It's poetic, and punchy, and grabs you by the heart. Judas, always an outsider, struggles to weigh his love for his brothers against growing rage and resentments, and ultimately - of course - loses everything.

STARRING: Damien Molony as Judas, Jimmy Akingbola as Jesus, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith as John and Clive Hayward as Peter.
