FLOYDADA

Taking the two Texas sisters to the rest of the world...

The creative impulse breathes life into two middle-aged sisters as they bring avant-garde performance to the rural plains of Texas. The action takes place in the 1920s: the younger sister, Ada, has dutifully stayed home to care for their parents while the elder, Dalia, has lived abroad and pursued a life as an artist. After many years apart, they are thrust together again when a terminal illness forces Dalia to return home to Floydada and Ada must care for her. Unwilling to sit idle and wait to die, Dalia convinces Ada that they can create a cabaret theater in town and perform their original work for their neighbors. The action of the play shifts between their domestic lives and their original Dada-inspired performances.
