The Den Theatre launches its 2014 season with the world premiere of THE ROPER by Chicago playwright Will Dunne, directed by ensemble member Ron Wells, playing now - April 13, 2014 on The Den Theatre Mainstage, 1333 N. Milwaukee Ave in Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood. Scroll down for some photos from the production!

THE ROPER features Tony Bozzuto, Michael Downey, Ted Hoerl, Robert Koon, John Luzar and Brad Woodard. Chicago, 1876. A petty criminal wants to make good. Hired by the U.S Secret Service as a "roper," or informant, to infiltrate a gang of Irish counterfeiters, he uncovers more than he bargained for - a shocking plot to commit one of the strangest crimes in American history: stealing President Lincoln's body. Based on a true story, THE ROPER is a tale of desperation, redemption and one man's shot at personal legacy.

The production team for THE ROPER includes: Andrew Hildner (scenic designer), Rachel S. Parent (costume designer), Cat Wilson (lighting designer), Mikey Moran (sound designer), Vivian Knouse (properties), Amanda Rozmiarek (technical director) Ellen DeSitter (production manager) and Rebecca Butler (stage manager).
