On the plains of West Texas in 1927, the small town of Floydada is home to two middle-aged sisters: Dalia, an artist forced to return due to a terminal illness, and Ada, the dutiful caretaker. Not satisfied to sit around and wait for the end, Dalia shakes up the mundane existence of her sister by convincing her to open a Dada-inspired cabaret in the family’s recently closed general store.

That was until Nel showed up, Carrie's granddaughter whom she hadn't seen since 1949. There was something strange going on but you couldn't quite put your finger on it!

Directed by Random Access Theatre's Artistic Dircetor Jennifer Sandella and featuring an original score by Geoff Barone and choreography by Esther Widlanski, this frenetic Jazz Age musical follows one woman’s struggle to find her place in the American Dreamscape. Torn between mundane domesticity and a glittery life in Hollywood, The Jane embarks on a frenzied journey to satisfy her cravings for a richer life.
Emotionally charged and culturally relevant, Pinwheel! raises poignant questions about gender, societal roles, and the illusive nature of the American Dream. It is a story that is at once erotic, comic and tragic as it examines our often dissatisfaction with cultural norms in our quest for authenticity.
