Radio 4’s five-part drama JUDAS starts Monday 26th in run up to Easter


Powerful drama by Lucy Gannon tracing the days leading up to Jesus’s death, from the perspective of the young man you never hear from: Judas.

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.

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

JUDAS can be heard on BBC Radio 4 each day from Monday 26 March through to Friday 30 March  at 10.45am and repeated again at 7.45pm every evening.
