About: Code of the West

In this strangely familiar world, an eccentric Englishman rules as Norton the First, Emperor of the United States. At least he thinks he does. And his new dynasty needs an heir. So when a Russian countess and her English secretary suddenly arrive and announce that they’re ready to talk marriage, it could be time for the wedding of the century. That’s if the Emperor’s official imperial bank doesn’t collapse, or his official imperial newspaper doesn’t cause a diplomatic incident.
Or he doesn’t get sent to prison.

It’s California.

Based on the life and times of the real self-proclaimed Emperor Norton, this comedy from veteran New York and London playwright/director Mark Giesser makes its UK debut. Earlier this year, the premiere of his Good Morning, Alamo! at the Tabard Theatre received universal critical acclaim.

Reviews

The press on Good Morning, Alamo!

‘Playwright Mark Giesser’s satirical take on the events leading to the infamous Battle of the Alamo … lights up with moments of inspired lunacy’ Timeout 4 Stars

‘Inventive and intelligent satire … Uber-talented cast … an exemplary piece of new writing’ The Stage

‘Is Mark Giesser the Joan Littlewood of our times? Certainly’ A Younger Theatre

The New York Times on Code of the West

‘It was Zane Grey who popularized the notion that there was a “code of the West”. Mark R. Giesser … has the sound instinct to ridicule it in mock battles of wit among several characters … in Mr. Giesser’s play the code decrees the success of whoever can think fastest and most deviously to his or her own advantage.’
