WORLD PREMIERE

 

The Resurrectionist King explores the life of a man unlike any other in DC’s past - the true story of Vigo Jansen, a grave robber who became a local legend.  Jansen robbed local cemeteries to get cadavers for DC’s medical schools and scientists.  Hounded by the police, but loved by the press, he became a folk hero to DC residents. Set during a 24-hour period in 1884, the play follows Jansen’s disastrous attempt to create a stage play about his grave-robbing career.
