Lenin's Embalmers by Vern Thiessen*
Directed by William Carden*
March 3 - 29, 2010
Lenin's Embalmers is a production of the Ensemble Studio Theatre/Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Science & Technology Project. Celebrating its twelfth anniversary, the EST/Sloan Project is designed to stimulate artists to create credible and compelling new theatrical works exploring the worlds of science and technology, and to challenge existing stereotypes of scientists and engineers in popular culture. Each season the EST/Sloan Project commissions and develops new works, and presents the results, at various levels from first readings to fully mounted productions, in the FIRST LIGHT Festival. Since its inception in 1998, the EST/Sloan Project has commissioned, developed and produced more than 200 playwrights, choreographers, composers and theatre companies.
