Carolyn Baeumler, Autumn Dornfeld, David Greenspan, Marin Ireland, and Anna Foss Wilson will star in the Hourglass Group's production of The Beeber Brinker Chronicles, September 27-October 20, at the Fourth Street Theatre. The production, which will open officially on October 1, will be directed by Leigh Silverman.

Adapted by Kate Moira Ryan and Linda S. Chapman from Ann Bannon's lesbian pulp novels of the 1950s and 1960s, the play follows the lives of college lovers Beth and Laura, who went their separate ways after graduation and later find themselves in the web of Beebo Brinker, a butch lesbian. Bannon will participate in a post-show talk back on September 30.

The show's creative team includes Rachel Hauck (sets), Theresa Squire (costumes), Nicole Pearce (lighting), and Jill BC DuBoff (sound). Silverman's directorial credits include Well, Blue Door, and Yellow Face.
