Who is really behind that door? In this wild farce, masks of illusion, collusion, and confusion combine to make love triangles, womanizing, infidelity, middle class malaise and a general disregard for social propriety the order of the night.

When a man can see only himself in the mirror can he see himself as others see him? In this high-energy comedy of manners, the clever characters in The Misanthrope use social masks to play games of power-mongering, revenge, and manipulation.

Do we really know the story of Judas? Was he betrayer or betrayed? Gurgis' modern, gritty play asks us to see past what we think we know as Judas' lawyers battle for his soul in a mythical trial. The audience experiences an intense journey of mercy, forgiveness, free will, culpability, raw humor, utter despair, and, ultimately, a prevailing sense of hope.
