Dr. Darla Shaw portrays humorist Irene Kampen who wrote several books about her life. She is less well known than her contemporary, Erma Bombeck, whose work was more upbeat and positive. Irene’s parents lived in Ridgefield and so did she for over 30 years. The Lucy Show, starring Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance, is based on her book, Life Without George. In the TV series, Lucy lived in Ridgebury and often went to the big town of “Danfield”.
