Presented by the Official State Theatre of Virginia, “Lying In State” centers on a late state senator who dies in a ridiculous gun accident, turning him into a national hero. The local political party leaders are strenuously looking for someone to fill his senate seat. His ex-wife is looking for a bugler to play at his funeral. A host of other zany characters are looking for love, votes and the right casket in this madcap comedy about love, politics and things not being what they seem to be.

The Barter Theatre, founded in Abingdon, Va., in 1932, is one of the oldest professional acting troupes in the country, and is acclaimed for its diverse shows and actors. Barter alumni include Oscar winners Gregory Peck, Patricia Neal, Ernest Borgnine and Ned Beatty, along with Seinfeld's Wayne Knight, The West Wing's John Spencer and Cocoon's Hume Cronyn. The Theatre was designated as Virginia's Official State Theatre in 1946.
