    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

In this new twist on the Oedipus complex, we take a look at the myth from Jocasta's complex point of view as a wife, devoted mother and conflicted daughter. These are strong and complex women who struggle against their fate—and sometimes one another. But their love and devotion is the link that binds them together in life and death.
