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) and Rebecca Butler (stage manager).
