1871. An imposter going by the name of Lord Gordon Gordon wanders into Minnesota and causes such a stir that he nearly ignites a war with Canada.  A fake. A fraud. A snake-charmer. This con-artist would dazzle and swindle his way into the hearts and wallets of some very well-to-do Minnesotans and then take them on a journey as twistedly bizarre as Glensheen. Hold on tight and take this wacky, wickedly funny, and musically smart journey through the exploits of Lord, “Oh, Lordy!” Gordon Gordon!
