Created by the playwright Segun Adefila out of exploration of the  “scam” that led to the betrayal of Jesus by Judas Iscariot, the semi operatic play is rendered in Yoruba, Pidgin and English.  “According to my findings”, Adefila told the PMNews journalist Nehru Odeh, “he returned the money because he asked them, ‘You didn’t tell me you were going to kill him. You just said I should identify him.’ That is my finding. It wasn’t out of remorse alone”.
