"With only three months left in 2015, I am pretty sure that I can safely dub 'Miss Buncle’s Book' at Lifeline Theatre one of my favorite plays of the year."  –Newcity
 
"Precisely the kind of engaging entertainment constituting this company's hallmark for more than three decades."  –Windy City Times

Barbara Buncle is just an ordinary, unassuming spinster passing an unremarkable existence in the sleepy village of Silverstream. But when the Great Depression wipes out her nest egg, she tries her hand at writing and publishes a novel – under an assumed name – about her quaint hometown and the oddball characters that inhabit it. When the book becomes a surprise bestseller and her neighbors’ foibles are thrust into the national spotlight, Miss Buncle must navigate a madcap storm of accusations, rivalries, and romances. A rollicking look at life imitating art and art imitating life, in a world premiere adaptation of the 1934 novel by D.E. Stevenson.

Based on the novel by D.E. Stevenson
Adapted by Christina Calvit
Directed by Dorothy Milne
