Government In Crisis

Immigrants flood across the border. More and more of them want to take over and force the country to accept their way of thinking. The only way to stop them may be to deploy the armyÖ

Modern Britain? Europe? America?

Mexico in 1835. Two English expats find themselves on opposite sides of a revolution.

Genteel painter Charlotte Vernon, mistress of an officer in the Mexican army, determines to prove her worth by chronicling the campaign to suppress Texan rebels. Shoemaker Harry Birchfield joins the rebellion in a bid to get rich. Their ambitions collide as the rebels make a suicide stand at the Alamo. But when it comes to immigrants and martyrdom, things donít always go according to plan, and the winner doesnít always settle the history.

In this world premiere by veteran New York and London playwright/director Mark Giesser, drama and satire join forces to explore what John Wayne and Disney didnít tell us about Americaís Dunkirk. What are the instructions for a proper revolution? What does Border Control want in a proper immigrant bovine? And whatís the proper way to rehearse the death of a legend?
