Junk Lady

The play Opal's Husband tells the story of Opal Kronkie, a junk collector on a quest to find her best friend a husband. (In my head I like to picture Meg White as Opal, mostly 'cause of the White Stripes' song "Rag and Bone"—"Well can't you hear we're selling rag and bone?/Bring out your junk and we'll give it a home/ A broken trumpet or a telephone/Come on, come on, come on, come on and give it to me.") After placing an old-school Dallas Observer-style "lonely hearts" ad for her friend, Opal is confronted with Captain Mooney, a wrinkly, 95-year-old J. Howard Marshall-style bachelor on the lam from the old folks home. From there we can only assume the traditional high jinks ensue.
