 A writer of children's stories is popular in his field but not at home, where he is a calculating sadist. His wife turns to another man for affection, and eventually the two of them devise a fool-proof plan to do away with the husband. Unfortunately, however, the writer's frustrated secretary learns of it and uses her information to trap the other man into marriage after he has killed the husband. From there, the intrigue only grows as the plot twists and turns, with a surprise ending!

Claire has a rare form of psychogenic amnesia that erases her memory whenever she goes to sleep. Claire awakens each morning as a blank slate on which her husband and teenage son must imprint the facts of her life. One morning a limping, lisping man in a ski mask, pops out from under her bed and claims to be her brother, there to save her. They head toward Claire’s childhood home, where her mother, Gertie, is aching to reveal the secrets of her past -- if only she could understand Gertie’s stroke-afflicted speech patterns. It gets even more complicated when very unusual guests stop by! Every twist and turn in this funhouse plot brings Claire closer to revealing her past life and everything she thought she’d forgotten. The audience views the ensuing mayhem through the kaleidoscope of Claire's world. The play culminates in a cacophony of revelations, proving that everything is not what it appears to be.

Through the magic of live theatre, the musical follows the Ingalls family's journey westward and settlement in DeSmet, South Dakota where Ma and Pa Ingalls hoped to make a better life for their children. It tells the story of their struggle to keep their land claim. In story, song and dance, we see the Ingalls suffering the hardships of winter blizzards and prairie fires as well as rejoicing in the settlement of land and town. Most of all, the story follows Laura as she grows from the wild child who loved to run free into a woman who embraces the responsibilities of her own future while struggling to remain true to herself.
