What would you pay for Lenin’s dead body? Putin wants Vladimir out of Red Square providing a great opportunity for Sergei Rabinovitch, a functionary in the Russian Federation, to spread his burgeoning capitalistic wings. When questioned by his deputy, Dmitry, how he came to possess Lenin’s body in the first place, Sergei explains that Lenin was a Communist. “Under communism, everything belongs to the people,” says Sergei. “I'm one of the people, so Lenin belongs to me. So I can sell him.” After failing to interest a sale with any big names in the entertainment field, Sergei is approached by Samantha Hathaway, a marketing VP for Pepsi. When she arrives at his office dressed to kill, Dmitry undercuts his boss for a chance to impress Samantha and exercise a bit of capitalistic will of his own. $10 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $15 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
