Two scientists, driven by fear and fame, are pushed to their limits when tasked with embalming former Soviet leader, Vladimir Lenin. Based on a true story of deception, scientific achievement and bitter betrayal, Lenin’s Embalmers is both a rollicking comedy and an epic tragedy that brings to light the resilience of the human spirit, ever-changing war games and the importance of always having vodka on hand. Lenin’s Embalmers is directed by RJ Tolan, and stars WHAT veterans Lacy Allen, Robin Bloodworth, David Fraioli and Joe Pietropaolo, joined by Will Dagger, Robin Haynes, Jonathan Randall Silver and Gigi Watson.
Vern Thiessen’s dark comedy, Lenin’s Embalmers runs August 9-31, with performances at 8:00 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Two preview performances, August 7 and 8, begin at 7:30 p.m. Opening night is August 9, at 8 p.m.
