OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Oscar-winning actress Patty Duke has been released from an Omaha hospital and plans to resume her speaking tour.

Bruce Crawford, who helped organize a screening of “The Miracle Worker” with Duke, tells the Omaha World-Herald (https://bit.ly/1ii2YXg ) the actress left the Nebraska Medical Center Sunday after being treated for irritable bowel syndrome.

Crawford says Duke’s husband, Michael Pearce, told him Sunday that she was feeling fine.

Before Duke sought treatment, the 67-year-old spoke at the movie screening Friday at Omaha’s Joslyn Art Museum. Crawford says Duke even signed autographs for 90 minutes after the movie.

“The Miracle Worker” tells the story of tutor Anne Sullivan’s efforts to help a young Helen Keller.
