Goold to direct ‘Judas Iscariot’

Play is a co-production with Headlong Theater

Rupert Goold, the Brit director whose buzzed-about Chichester Fest production of “Macbeth” starring Patrick Stewart will play BAM in the spring, is set to helm Stephen Adly Guirgis’ play “The Last Days of Judas Iscariot” at London’s Almeida Theater in April.

“Judas” first bowed in 2005 at Off Broadway’s Public Theater, where Philip Seymour Hoffman helmed a cast that included Eric Bogosian and Sam Rockwell

Almeida’s “Judas” (March 28-May 10) is a co-production with Headlong Theater, of which Goold is a.d.

Show is part of an Almedia spring that includes production of Harold Pinter’s “The Homecoming” (Jan. 31-March 22), directed by Almeida a.d. Michael Attenborough, and Henrik Ibsen’s “Romersholm” (May 15-July 5) helmed by Anthony Page (“Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”).
