After Vladimir Lenin’s death, Stalin orders two Jewish scientists to preserve Lenin’s body for all time. If they succeed, the rewards will be considerable. If not, it’s the gulag – or worse. Based on real events, Vern Theissen’s nimble dark comedy exposes the absurdities of Soviet life under Stalin.

Lenin’s Embalmers is part of L.A. Theatre Works’ Relativity Series, presented with major funding from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, bridging science and the arts in the modern world.

Associate Artistic Director, Anna Lyse Erikson. Senior Radio Producer, Ronn Lipkin. Recording Engineer, Editor, and Sound Designer, Erick Cifuentes. Mixed by Mark Holden for The Invisible Studios, West Hollywood.
