In Touch and Us Weekly know -- gossip will always be in demand. Take Miss Barbara Buncle, for example. She's just a run-of-the-mill, unassuming spinster living an unremarkable existence in the sleepy village of Silverstream. But when the Great Depression wipes out her nest egg, she decides to publish a novel (under a nom de plume, of course) in which she dishes about her quaint little hometown and the oddball characters who inhabit it. When the book becomes a surprise best-seller and her neighbors' foibles are thrust into the national spotlight, Miss Buncle must navigate a madcap storm of accusations, rivalries and romances. You can see this world-premiere adaptation of the 1934 novel by D.E. Stevenson at Chicago's Lifeline Theatre.
The September 27 performance will include open captioning.
