The setting is again Opal's tumbledown home on the edge of the city dump, where Opal has a visitor looking for a tire to fit his 1927 Reo truck. Misguided into thinking that Opal is a rich eccentric, the shifty visitor, Norman, announces (fallaciously) that he too is a Kronkie—and Opal's long-lost kin. The upshot is that the warmhearted Opal takes him, and his whole family, in—whereupon they scheme to do her out of her supposed fortune. When Norman confides that his daughter-in-law, Verna, is pregnant (abetted by a well-placed pillow), Opal decides to leave all her worldly goods to the "baby," and the others have to settle for petty thievery while they figure out how to get around their lie. Needless to say the "plot thickens" hilariously as they do so, but happily all ends well, at least for Opal, who emerges safe, sound and ready for whatever may come next.
"The third episode in the adventures of the irrepressible Opal Kronkie, the zany and lovable heroine of Everybody Loves Opal and Opal is a Diamond. First presented at the renowned Flat Rock Playhouse (the State Theatre of North Carolina).
