What to do with a Russian Dictator who wants to live forever?
A finalist for the 2011 Governor General’s Award for Drama, described as “…darkly comic” by The Globe and Mail, Vern Thiessen’s Lenin’s Embalmers is about two scientists, driven by fear and fame, are pushed to their limits when faced with embalming the former Soviet leader. A gripping, hilarious and thought-provoking play that delves into the captivating world of Russian history (With perhaps some present-day parallels).
