Each story was entirely unique, and many of the scenes described were snapshots of lifelong relationships played out as the end of life approached. Learn More

    • Drama | Tragedy

    14 was inspired by the true-life event in May 2001 in which a smuggler abandoned 30 Mexicans crossing the desert, resulting in 14 deaths from dehydration. It is a starting point for exploration to investigate the complexities of people living on the border, not giving answers but raising difficult questions. The mosaic of flawed and struggling people included emphasize the importance of investigating this topic in a way that calls not only for action and conversation but, ultimately, for a collective solution.

  6. The Story of Opal

    The Story of Opal

    Adapted by Gale Childs Daly. From the book by Opal Whiteley.

    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
