Cold, Cold Ground: Active Cultures’ The Resurrectionist King

Jeremy Lister and Evan Crump

Wherein I appraise the unfortunately-christened Active Cultures Theatre’s world-premiere, based-on-actual-events bodysnatching play, The Resurrectionist King, for the Washington City Paper.

FURTHER READING (RELATED): Here’s Michael Little‘s fine 2005 WCP feature that inspired Stephen Spotswood to write the play. Fascinating stuff.

FURTHER FURTHER READING (UTTERLY IRRELEVANT): I also capsule-reviewed Ounie Lecomte’s very moving film A Brand New Life, which is on the bill for FilmFest DC, in this same issue.
