    This play is an adaptation of Opal Whiteley’s diary. She was a little girl who lived at the turn of the 20th century in a lumber camp in Oregon. Opal’s world was exceptional, and she recorded every day, lovingly and carefully, in her own special language. Everyone who enters Opal’s world will remember it. Her life is portrayed here without sentiment—it was a hard, impoverished time in a grim environment, and yet she managed to find good in the world and engaged it with an “understanding heart.” Learn More
