Active Cultures Theatre Company's newest endeavor is a play about a play. "The Resurrectionist King" takes us back to the 1880s, as the most famous grave robber in D.C. history prepares to put on a one-man show. Rebecca Sheir visits a rehearsal to learn more about this legendary character, and the theater company that's bringing him to life.
