Their mission: preserve Lenin's body for all time. Or else. In 1924, two Russian scientists have to race against time to preserve Lenin's body so it can be on display - forever. Playwright Vern Thiessen gives us his version of these real life events in Lenin’s Embalmers. It’s a dark comedy, a look at scientific ingenuity, and a study of the absurdity of life under Stalin. Starring JD Cullum as Vlad, Simon Helberg as Boris, Gregory Harrison as Lenin, Jon Matthews as Krasin, Rufus Sewell as Stalin, John Sloan as Agent 2, Mark Jude Sullivan as Agent 1, and Jocelyn Towne as Nadia.
