“Courtney Bailey Parker as the lawyer Cunningham is the center of the complex story, and her belief that Judas deserves the opportunity to petition for forgiveness is its heart. There’s an earnest resilience to the character that makes you want to know more of her back story and Parker plays the room with convincing skill. Parker is the straight woman in a room full of comedians, and she holds her own with considerable spunk.” - Tina Farmer, KDHX
