The Retrocessionists is an improv troupe in Alexandria, VA.
Our Story: Washington, DC was founded on land donated by Virginia and Maryland in 1801. The city had the shape of a beautiful diamond. Today, there is a bite missing from that diamond. That happened in the 1840's. The historical event which returned Virginia's part of the diamond was called Retrocession. That includes Alexandria, the home of the Retrocessionists.
