 THE MIRACLE WORKER, Rated PG. April 21 – May 7, 2017

By William Gibson

WINNER! 1960 TONY AWARD – Best Play

This classic production tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute, Helen Keller. THE MIRACLE WORKER dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such. Desperate, the Keller’s hire Annie Sullivan to serve as governess and teacher for their daughter. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence.

“Interesting, absorbing and moving.” – The New York Post
